Lightfield has set the bar for quality sabot slug ammunition
In the late 1970’s the Lightfield Ammunition Corporation perfected the saboted slug while designing munitions for the U.S. Marine Corps. In the late 1980′s the patented technologies that went into creating the Lightfield Alpha rounds for the U.S. Military were applied to a pure lead slug for the civilian hunting market. By the time the Hybred design was released in 1992 it contained 8 out of the 10 basic characteristics of flight which to that point had never been done with a hunting slug. Through this process Lightfield Ammunition invented a hunting slug that is consistently accurate to 150 yards and beyond, will retain 100% energy within the intended target, and will (with a less than desirable hit) take down any North American big game.
The Lightfield Hybred series of sabot slugs uses an hour glass shaped 99% pure lead slug. The use of a post wad that acts like a wedge, expanding the slug outward causing the slug and sabot to fit the barrel of ANY shotgun, rifled or smoothbore, perfectly. The post wad is constructed with a double spring design that assures full expansion of the slug in the barrel without distortion. It also stays attached to the slug through impact. This is a very important factor for increase accuracy at longer yardages – it works like the fletching or vanes of a dart.
Then there is the exclusively patented “keyed” discarding sabot that locks itself to the slug. This allows two important things to happen simultaneously… consistent slug RPM speeds as determined by your twist rate, and protection from any lead ever touching the inside of the barrel. Combine this with our proprietary powder, exclusively custom blended for Lightfield, and we are able to achieve the proper pressures and velocities using heaver projectiles that our competitors can only dream about.
This is precisely why Lightfield has set the “Standard by which all other slugs are Judged”.
Lightfield has allowed independent testing through the North American Hunting Club with great success. 300 randomly chosen NAHC members where asked to participate in a filed test of our SameSite™ Accuracy line of ammunition, our 12 gauge Hybred Elite 3″, the Alpha Gold muzzleloader round, and our new 20 gauge 3″ Magnum slug round. The results were impressive to say the least with scores ranging from 93% satisfaction to 98% – the highest rating any single product has ever received through the NAHC Field Testing Program.
Lightfield Ammunition is the ONLY munitions manufacturer that can offer SameSite™ Accuracy….
