Re: winchcester supreme partion gold sabot slugs

I found the results awesome to say the least. I shot my first shotgun deer with that load this year.

I sat at the edge of a creek bottom, and had two doe come out in a field on the other side. I threaded the needle through the brush, and watched her take 3 steped and fall over. It wasn't until after the shot that I rellized it was quite aways. I sighted the gun for 50 yards, and the shot was range finder verified at 102 yards. I hit her right where I aimed. Right through the center of the rib cage.

The entire off side rib cage was completely bloodshot. I gotta wonder what would have happened if I hit her in the shoulder.

Re: winchcester supreme partion gold sabot slugs

I have shot a couple deer with them here in PA at modest ranges of 30-40 yards. No issues. I was first exposed to these slugs while hunting in Iowa a few years back. The guys from the Hunting the Heartland outdoor show were in camp that week. The were sponsored by Winchester at the time and were using these slugs. I witnessed the on guy drop a 150" eight point on the run at about 125 yards and just rolled the thing. I think that was the first year they were coming out with those slugs and these guys had been using them and were very high on them for obvious reasons.

I use them and they are great, but pricey.

I used em a couple years ago. Good penetration, but pricey. Partition gold's are a great slug, if your gun likes em you can't go wrong with them. I guarantee your wallet won't like them tho

Re: winchcester supreme partion gold sabot slugs

Anymore they are the smae price as any other "premium" slug. I bought them when they first came out 8-9 years ago for almost $13 a box. They went up to $17 a box. I got two boxes this year for $12 a box. Same as most others. Sure, there are some that are cheaper, but they aren't in the same class.

I guess they finally had to come in line with the cost of other comperable slugs in price.

Re: winchcester supreme partion gold sabot slugs

Winchester 50 cal. 1 oz sabot slugs shot a 2" group at 100 yards in my Browning; However a couple of years ago in OH one hit a branch at 50 yards and deflected from a chest to a liver shot?? I would think that would happen.

Waited 3 hrs. and retrieved a very nice 8 pointer

I use them in my 1300 Winchester 12 ga. I love them,every deer I have shot has dropped in it's tracks. They make a heck of a hole.

Re: winchcester supreme partion gold sabot slugs

Has anyone else noticed that these seem to be getting harder to find?

Nope. I find them at most gun shops. If you wait till the last minute you will find that they tend to sell out faster. GM had piles of them.
