    Anyone out there reloading shotgun sabot slugs?

    If so what kind of components/loads are you using? I've done some searching and haven't come up with much info.

    Anyone know if any of the muzzleloader sabots would work?

    Thanks,
    Noah

    I load Lyman sabot slugs in Fed G.M. hulls with WAA12R wads and Blue dot powder. All the components are readily available except the slugs. I have the mold.

    Muzzleloader sabots won't work

    Nobody really sells narrow caliber BRI/Winchester type sabot slugs and sabots for reloading that I know of. Most slugs are either traditional rifled slugs, or some variant of a Brenneke style that is designed to be shot in a modified wad section. These usually run somewhere close to 12gauge bore size, not closer to .50 as with the BRI/Winchester style. The Lyman is another larger caliber slug, though it has a wasp waist.
    Muzzleloaders would be interesting, but the only ones with a bore close to a 12gauge would be a Brown Bess or Charleville musket.
