Hornady sst sabot review

I bought these because they were the cheapest in the shelf. 12ga 300gr 2000 fops muzzle velocity. They made a weird whistling noise when I sighted in my gun last Friday, but that might have been the echo from the nearby hill or something. They definitely fired differently than the remmington golds I used to shoot. SSTs also seemed to shoot higher and to the right. Jury for me is still out but at $12 a box and the fact that I did get my doe yesterday makes me think they'll be ok

Love em. Never heard the whistle. Killed a couple deer with them. 2 inches high at 100 makes you 6 inches low at 200. I did have a gun once that could not get groups with them. Otherwise my current slug gun loves them.

What are you shooting with? I'm using a moss berg 835 cantilever setup. 24in barrel, 1.5-4.5x scope. Four of my friends were there and heard the whistle too

Benelli nova and a semi auto mossberg. Unsure of model. Cantilever barrel. Although I have ear plugs with war muffs over. Did you try a shell from a different box

Not yet, but I did buy 6 boxes since they were on sale. I shot two yesterday without ear plugs and although I didn't hear any whistle, my left ear is still ringing hard

They shoot great from my Mossberg 500, and work great on deer.

Re: Hornady sst sabot review

I tried hornady SST's last year and They didn't leave much for a blood trail so i switched to remington copper solids. My brother shot a doe with the SST's and the bullet entered behind the front shoulder and lodged in the hip. That bullet never opened at all and the stupid red plastic tip was even still in it. Junk. but they do shoot good.

Life is like a coin, you can spend it anywhere you like, but you can only spend it once.

Shoot a deer this week with them. Pretty impressive slug. Also went boar hunting with them. Boar dropped where he stood.
