Lightfield has become one of the industry leaders in big game hunting sabot slugs. We have perfected an entire line of hunting slugs based on tighter specifications, that result in unmatched accuracy among sabot rounds. Take a look at our product selection chart below to choose the rounds that are right for your hunt. Then try out some slugs on the range, and see for yourself the results speak for themselves.
The Lightfield Hybred series utilizes a pure lead hour glass shaped slug. This is designed for rapid expansion, shedding ALL energy within the width of a whitetail deer sized animals upper body thus keeping. the animal within the sight area. Very rarely exiting the target (animal), the EXP expands too large to penetrate the hide a second time transferring 100% of the retained energy of the slug into the body of the target (animal). In addition, the post/pressure wad is designed to stay with the slug, locked fast forever, to aid in the stabilization increasing the accuracy at greater distances. The sabot is in two parts and surrounds the slug while it is moving down the barrel. Both pieces of the sabot come off the slug less than 20 feet from the muzzle.
Commander IDS PLUS series:
The Lightfield Commander IDS PLUS is a controlled expansion, deep penetration, “Heavy Game” slug intended for game of (300lbs or better), thus the IDS PLUS will normally shoot thru deer size game. Muzzle velocities are greater than the Hybred line as is the size of the slug, 600 grain vs the 546 grain of the Hybred. The IDS PLUS is constructed very similar to the Hybred with the post/pressure wad staying locked to the slug to target impact. Again this design aids in stabilizing the slug during flight eliminating tumble and increasing the accuracy at greater distances. The sabot on the IDS is one piece that surrounds the slug and will not discard until target impact. This design aids in the controlled expansion and deeper penetration.
