12 gauge sabot reloading

I have a 12 gauge pump because some places I go require a shotgun. I have a rifled barrel that shoots sabots very well but they are sort of expensive. Can they can reloaded and what is the quality of the reload- equal to commercial loads? Any good load data?

Sure you can, and you have our permission, too.
Lots of web info on it, like this:

I have reloaded the Lyman slug in a WAA12 wad with SR4759, Win 209's all into a 3" Win compression formed case. Groups at 50 for 5 shots were a ragged hole and a flyer about 1" away. Rest was my elbows on a table.

When I get my cases, I'll dial this in with a better rest and also some 100 yd shooting.

IMO, this is pretty equivalent to the Fusion load I buy, but the shells load easier in the gun.
