Our patented M1 flechette sabot packed with small arms grade flechettes for reloading is the SAME sabot we use in our loaded ammunition. It is designed for bore safe protection of the weapons barrel and for consistant flechettes release performance holding all flechettes points forward. The sabots transportation band holds the sabot and flechettes together untill you insert the assembly into your shotgun shell or your muzzleloading shotgun.
The flechettes that are packed into the M1 sabot are new hardened small arms grade and are the SAME ones used in our loaded ammunition. They have sharper and more concentric points, stronger shafts, and thicker fins. Our small arms grade flechettes insure higher performance and longer ranges than normally seen in this type of ammunition. The commonly available surplus flechettes salvaged from canister munitions are generally inferior for small arms use.
The sabot maintains the flechettes critical bore alignment and release consistancy for performance unattainable by homemade type loads using birdshot wads, granulated fillers, and card closures. Our packed sabots have an indefinite shelf life compared to loaded ammunition, so keep a few handy just in case - because when you really need'em you're not going to be able to get'em. Loading data is included with packed sabots.
