Our 12 ga flechette ammunition is assembled using our patented M1 sabot with new flechettes, hulls, and powder. Each assembled round features the latest iteration of the patented M1 sabot holding all our small arms grade flechettes points forward. The M1 sabot is designed for bore safe protection of the weapons barrel and for consistant flechettes release performance. It maintains the flechettes critical bore alignment and release consistancy for performance unattainable by homemade type loads using birdshot wads, granulated fillers, and card closures.
The flechettes packed into the M1 sabot are new hardened small arms grade made specifically for this 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. They are poorly hardened with weak fins and shafts that will bend in a shotgun shell when fired. They have points that often non-concentric and dull. These defects add up to extreme dispersal around the aim point and generally poor terminal performance.
Our flechette sabot ammunition weighs approximately half that of conventional lead 9 ball 00-buckshot cartridges, allowing you to carrying twice as much ammunition for a given load bearing weight limit. Our sabot with 19 steel flechettes has 211 percent more projectiles than lead 9 ball 00-buckshot, with an equally higher probability of kill (P/K) or incapacitating hit (I/H) at all your engagement ranges. The small arms grade flechettes used in our M1 sabot series are aerodynamically efficent compared to the deformed lead balls in fired buckshot, with exemplary accuracy and penetration performance at all ranges for soft targets.
Our flechette sabot ammunition performs like a slug untill the projectiles are released. For accuracy the recommended sights are adjustable ghost ring or optical, zeroed at 20 meters with 1 ounce slugs. Aimpoints for ranges up to 20 meters should be slightly lower (10-12 inches) than center of mass, at 40 meters aimpoint should be center of mass, and at 60 meters and beyond top of mass adjusted upward for drop compensation. These are general recommendations for aimpoints and if you are unfamilar with flechette ammunition we suggest you start at 5 meters and adjust your aiming accordingly. Improved cylinder bore choke smaller than recommended may disrupt the sabot assembly and distort the pattern, giving inconsistant results. The recommended MINIMUM cylinder bore choke diameter is 0.725 inches, or larger. DO NOT USE rifled barrels or rifled chokes, our flechette sabot ammunition WILL NOT PATTERN CORRECTLY in shotguns with rifled barrels or rifled chokes and the projectiles will be widely dispersed.
Our flechette sabot ammunition functions best in pump-action shotguns having a cylinder bore choke, as found in most service or security weapons with barrel lengths from 6 to 20 inches. The current production load WILL NOT FUNCTION in most gas or inertia operated semi-automatic shotguns like the Remington 11-87, Saga 12, Beretta, and Benelli M-2 or M-4. It has been reported to only function in the FN special purpose. A fully functional semi-automatic load is under development and will be released for sale pending patent issuance.
