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 products 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.
Hybred Lites 2-3/4″ 12 ga.
The Lightfield 12 gauge 2 ¾” Hybred EXP Lite is a favorite among young and old alike. Shaving 150 ft/lbs of pressure at the muzzle provides for a lighter recoil and easier handling slug round. Don’t let the less recoil fool you however, with a 1 1/4 oz (546 grain) hourglass shaped pure lead slug for maximum expansion the Hybred Lite is still achieving 2,049 ft/lbs at the muzzle and a whopping 1,102 @ 125 yards. TKO = 60. Because Lightfield slugs are designed and engineered to expand to fill any barrel they will out perform all others in smooth or riffled barrels. (SameSite Accuracy™ line)

When using a 20 gauge firearm and maximum power is desired the 20 gauge 3″ Hybred Mag-20 has the same great quality as our original Hybred Series with a larger punch! The Hybred MAG-20 incorporates a post wad acting as a stabilizer and the sabot is “keyed” to the slug which assures maximum torque, rotation, and velocity translating into better down range trajectory and exceptional accuracy. The Mag 20 uses a 7/8 oz (385 grain) 54 caliber slug (not a pistol round) which provides 2470 ft/lbs at the muzzle and an impressive 987 @ 150 yards. TKO= 57 for maximum knock down power. The Hybred MAG-20 is the newest member of the SameSite Family.
Slug gun hunters know the devastating combination of accuracy and knockdown power afforded by Lightfield’s proven Hybred line of shotgun hunting slugs. For 2015, Lightfield offers discriminating slug gun hunters a new premium 12-gauge round that combines the proven IDS design with a lighter, faster, 465-grain pure lead slug that shoots flatter than a Kansas parking lot.
Like all Lightfield slugs, the new Lightfield Bucks, Boars & Bears (LBBB-12) 2-3/4” 12-gauge slug is designed to chamber to any barrel, ensuring consistent performance in both rifled and smooth bore shotguns. The speedy LBBB-12 leaves the muzzle at an impressive 1,600 fps with a massive 2,643 ft-lbs of energy, before delivering a staggering 1,094 ft-lbs into its target at 125 yards with a mere ¾” of drop.
“The Bucks, Boars & Bears is the most devastating and accurate shotgun round available for hog hunters,” says Brian Smith, Lightfield’s Director of Marketing and avid pig shooter. “We took the proven, award-winning accuracy and performance of Lightfield’s IDS line of heavy-game ammunition, reduced the weight of the slug slightly and ended up with an ultra-flat-shooting, hard-hitting round that will have hunters makin’ bacon at 175+ yards.”
Bear hunters, too, will quickly come to appreciate the merits of the new Lightfield LBBB-12. Its impact-discarding sabot design helps control the expansion of the slug upon impact, boring through hide, tough tissue and bone to penetrate deeply where full expansion then occurs.
The Lightfield Alpha Gold 300 is a .50 caliber, 300 grain, 99% pure lead saboted spitzer boattail muzzeloading bullet designed with a serrated hollow point for maximum controlled expansion. The Lightfield Alpha Gold 300 has a higher Ballistic Coefficient than any saboted pistol bullet for muzzleloading. In reports, members stressed Alpha Gold’s ease of loading, accuracy and stopping power. Lightfield’s Alpha Gold has received the North American Hunting Club Field Test Approval. The North American Hunting Club Member Reports gave a 97% Recommendation to Lightfield’s Alpha Gold 300 saboted spitzer boat tail-an exceptional recommendation for any ammunition. It retains higher velocity which translates into a flatter trajectory with more downrange energy for deeper penetration! Includes FREE ramrod adaptor!
We designed the Alpha Gold for effectiveness, and we precisely tested Alpha Gold to establish the correct loads for a variety of powders that will help you be successful. Alpha Gold’s sabot provides the proper and critcally important gas seal in both regular and quick loading muzzle crowns. The sabot fully engages in the rifling with the 99% pure lead expanding to lock with the sabot to form a single projectile in the barrel. Like other Lightfield’s sabot slugs, the Alpha Gold sabot and bullet spin together as a single unit, a spin rate that is as consistent bullet to bullet as your rifling. The result is accuracy one Alpha gold after another. Add hard-to-believe expansion – from a size less than a dime to greater than a quarter – and you have the extraordinary stopping power you want in the field.
