    Default Rifled Slug Sleeve

    Williams Shotgun 12 Gauge Slug Sleeve : Barrels at GunBroker.com

    I wonder how this would work with a Saiga-12. Current bid only $5 so it may be worth trying it out. Is there the chance this could shoot off? The clamp looks rather snug with the three bolts.

    I can't find anything about these, not sure if they would be good for a Saiga or not?

    Don't know, never seen or heard of this before?
    Maybe it's one of those things that were made before rifled slugs were made for smooth bores?

    I remember reading on them 20/25 years ago when I was SCATTERGUNMAN.
    From what I remember they do put some spin on the slut to help stablize it.
    Mossberg was the first to mass produce rifled slug barrels and I went with that.They say you must use sabots in a rifled slug barrel.The old Foster slug
    will not benafit much from the rifling.
    PS: When the 12ga rifled slug barrels first hit the streets,some thought the ATF
    would shut them down.(High Powered Rifle over .50 cal)

    I've seen the ads in old magazines. Basically, it was popular before threaded choke tubes became the standard. Polychokes were also popular, but required a gunsmith to install. These were a DIY proposition.

    Well I just won it, I'm going to give it a shot (pun intended)! We loaded up 100 slugs this weekend so I have some ammo to play with

    Meh, didn't work like we expected. Threw them all over the place! Was using Lee slugs with a normal wad, not sure how this would affect the results. Don't plan to try with non-wad slugs as I'm grouping well enough without them. 5" group of 5 shots at 50 yards

    Most of my 12ga shotgun hulls are ACTIV and Winchester comp. formed plastic and I loaded them with 23gr of unique under a WAA12F114 wad
    under a 525gr Lyman Sabot cast from WW from the used tire shop.This was a fold crimp rated at 1271fps.
