Default remington accu tip slugs

Has anyone heard that the remington accu tip slugs cause damage to a rifled shotgun barrel. I read this on another forum and I don't understand how this could be? Any comments would ba appriciated.

I don't see how. Unless the sabot is made of some material that's different than all the other sabots. As far as the slug itself goes, it's not contacting the rifling at all so it can't be that. I call BS.

I never heard anything like that.....and I'm not willing to spend $20 for a box of 5 slugs to find out either.

The Accutip slugs were made specifically to shoot out of a rifled barrel. If you try to shoot them from a smoothbore then you will have the same issues as shooting any other sabot slug from a smoothbore

From Remingtons site:

Premier® AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slug

Power Portâ„¢ Tip delivers dramatically superior accuracy

Spiral nose cuts and proprietary bonding technology control expansion at all ranges from 5 to 200 yards

Huge .58-caliber slug is the largest tipped slug available today

Over 95% weight retention – weighs more after impact than all the others start with!

Slug jacket made from high-strength cartridge brass

Designed for use in fully-rifled barrels only
