20 or 12 gauge slugs

I visited the local Bass Pro Shop in town and looked at there slugs. One shell had a slug that looked along the line of a 40 or 45 in the 20 gauge. Im getting ready to start up on three gun competition and i will shoot slugs. Im open to any ideas . Sorry about the typo in the tittle i need ideas for both the 20 and 12 gauge

Can't quite figure out your question. 12 and 20 are different gauges. they bot have a variety of slug options.

Perhaps a little more description and explanation would narrow the field down a bit!

You could also type the word shotgun slugs into our search engine and come up with a ton of stuff.

Welcome to the shotgun forum, look forward to more information.


Good Luck & Be Safe

Yes it did have a plastic sleeve. My main question is what calibers like 45-70 or other calibers that i could load and play around with to find a real accurate slug. For both 20 and 12 gauge

if it has a plastic sleeve holding the slug. then its not a slug. its a sabot shell, for use in fully rifled shotgun barrels,some can be used in shotgun barrels that use choke tubes,providing that you have a "rifled" choke tube in the barrel.

as far as loading 45-70 bullets into a shotgun shell, i have no clue about that,sorry .

OK, sounds like you are interested in Sabot slug loading. I do shoot some, but every time I have a issue I go here, in my opinion a great site for any slug shooter.

Try ballisticproducts.com, they may answer your question. I prefer 12 guage due to the fact that you can find more components for slug handloading. i handload slugs using lightfield sabot slugs, not a copper jacketed bullet like i believe you are asking about, but accuracy is great at a cheap per shot price!
