Lightfield Ammunition Corporation specializes in manufacturing the hardest hitting, most accurate saboted slugs available to today's hunters for use in their rifled shotgun barrels, even at extended ranges. During that all-important split second immediately after a slug is fired and prior to its exiting the barrel, maximum spin is imparted to the locked sabot/slug assembly. Once it clears the muzzle the design produces incredible projectile stability through both the supersonic and especially the subsonic phases of the slug's flight. Maximized projectile spin rate and flight stability are the most important factors when incomparable consistency and accuracy are the goals. 5 rounds per box.
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by short range i shot these out of my twelve gauge and it only went 25 yards with enough power to kill April 15, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by payload these shells shoot great but they have a punishing recoil and i shoot a benelli super nova and it doesnt kick if you dont have a recoil pad get one February 11, 2009
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not impressed at all Tried these with my New England Arms Pardner Tracker 2 SB1 20 guage. Was not impressed with the outcome Just do not think they compared as well as some of the other slugs I tested (see reviews) at the yardages I shot. Do not know how penetration is as I did not hunt with them, only sighted in. December 20, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Accurate slug I have been using these slugs for about 5+ years out of a Remington 1100 with a Hastings rifled slug barrel and a 4x32 scope. I have been extremely satisfied with the overall accuracy out to 75-80 yards as that is about as far as I have ever sited it in or shot at a deer. I am sited in at 2 -2 1/2 inches high at 50 yds and it is right on at 75. Very accurate, but I have never dropped one in his tracks even though shot placement has been excellent? I would however recommend although they are getting a little expensive. November 21, 2008

A: 
The 20ga certainly has enough power to kill deer or bear out to 100 yards. The Lightfield slugs are excellent but should only be used in a rifled barrel. That's where they get their accuracy from. I don't reccomend a full choke for any type of slug.

A: 
Using a rifled barrel for whitetail deer, yes. I wouldn't recommend using a smooth bore or choked barrel with this slug. This is a sabot slug and won't act like a rifled slug would in a smooth bore. It is a great slug for rifled barrels though. I know that it will take down deer in 20 gauge. I don't really know about bears though. I would say that you could kill a bear with their 20 gauge slugs, but I would personally want to use a 12 gauge if I were going to try to kill a bear with it.

A: 
Most of the time the difference comes in the OZ of the pellet. For example; the cheaper may be 1 1/4 OZ and the more exspensive may be 1 5/8 OZ.

A: 
The LFH12345 have a heavier charge to them and are rated at 1450fps versus 1300fps.

Unless you want a heavy recoil load or need that extra speed because you're shooting long distance I would stick with the lighter load.

A: 
Lightfields perform best in a fully rifled barrel and no slug should ever be fired through a choke more restricting than. Modified.

A: 
Lightfield would suggest that you only use 2 3/4 in slugs in guns chambered in 2 3/4 or 3 inches. The reasoning is that there is enough gap between the end of the shell and where the chamber necks down to the barrel on a 3 1/2 chamber using a 2 3/4 in sabot slug that the sabot could be push out and separate from the slug, possibly causing pressure issues. From My understanding lightfield is the only manufacturer warning of this possibility. They are also one of the few manufacturers making sabots in 3 - 3 1/2 inches. I think they recommend using the 3 1/2 in slug (or at least the 3 in) in 3 1/2 in chambers. I have never heard of anyone having any problems with this issue. I talked to someone associated with lightfield and they said that they had seen some guns that have erratic patterns with undersized slugs.

I have personally used 2 3/4 in lighfield slugs in my 3 1/2 in chambered Mossberg 835 Ultimag 12 gauge with rifled barrels for years and not seen any issues myself. Accuracy is great. I wouldn't use it with a smooth bore though as sabot slugs are made for rifled barrels. And if Lightfields warnings worry you then just play it safe and use a 3 1/2 in slug with a 3 1/2 in barrel.

Depends on if you have a rifled barrel... I have the Mossberg 835 Rifled Barrel w/Cantilever and have to shoot sabots. I love the lightfield sabots. To each gun is different tho.

None. Sabot slugs are meant to be shot out of rifled barrels, smooth bore barrels should shoot the cheaper " rifled slugs"

A: 
I wouldn't use a sabot slug in a non-rifled bore. Without the spin the slug will be very unstable and inaccurate. Use a Brenneke/Foster rifled slug and a IC choke instead.

A: 
You will have to experiment with the old "Foster" style slugs to find out which one your gun likes. The Remington Slugger, Winchester rifled slug or the Brenneke rifled slug would be a great place to start.

Use any lead slug you want. Do not use a SABOT SLUG. You need to try different slugs to find out what shoots best.

You should not use a sabot slug in a non rifled barrel unless you have at least a rifled choke. You could use a rifled slug though.
