    I haven't been able to find anymore information on these other than what's on the box. Seems pretty neat if you ask me. 119743_ts.jpg

    The sabot cant be very thick... Normal 410 slugs are 1/4 or 1/5 oz. 97 grains is .22 oz. I wonder if its a 97 gr rifle bullet style or what? A 97gr rifle bullet is fairly standard for a 6mm.

    Im waiting for the magtech brass 410 shells to come back around so I can load some #4 buckshot in em.

    What is the bullet and at what velocity. I seriously doubt it will hold a candle to an ordinary ,357 out of a carbine. Slug can't be much over 100 grains.
    If all you have is a 410, however...

    This is basically the same slug, sold under the Barnaul name. Golden Bear is one of Barnaul's brands of hunting ammo.

    Other than the sabot is it basically a standard 410 foster slug. Soft lead 97gr slug in a very thin sabot with a polymer gas seal cushion. In my testing I got an average 1744 fps from a 22.5 inch 410 barrel. That is 669 ft-lbs of muzzle energy.

    Personally I have always preferred Brenneke slugs for my 410. They are a hard cast 114 gr, trailing gas seal, slugs that at least from my 410 are pushing just over 1000 ft-lbs of energy.

    I got a box that I shot one out of... the brass swelled and had to use a hammer and wood dowel rod to beat out... haven’t had a problem with plastic hulls out of the same gun
