Default Sabot slug which one?

Just bought a Remington rifled slug barrel for my model 1100. Which brand of sabot slug works for you in your 1100?

Remington Buck Hammer. But, I believe they are no longer in production.

I switched to a muzzle loader to reduce felt recoil on my poor shoulder

Can't answer for the 1100 but when I used a slug gun I found the best accuracy was the Win that was a 50 caliber bullet in a sabot. Untracked a lot of whitetails with those.

I shoot an Remington 870 20 gauge with a rifled barrel and have always used the Winchester BRI slugs with it.
They have an hour glass shape.
The 20 gauge BRI starts out as .40 caliber,
When I recovered a slug that traveled almost full length diagonally on a quartering shot. it expanded to about .64 caliber, which is about 33% expansion.
They also shoot great in an H&R heavy barrel 20 ga. slug gun which is known for accuracy.
Winchester teamed up with the independent BRI a long time ago and then may have bought them out because their slugs were that good.

I can only imagine how well the heavier 12 ga. slugs would perform.

Ive used the BRI slugs in the past when I could find them for sale.
the result depends a great deal on your rifling twist rate,
if your shotgun stabilizes them they work great,
many shotguns Ive seen, especially the guys using a smooth bore and rifled choke,
won,t keep them stable past 70 yards or so

Coming from more of a muzzleloading back ground i really prefer to keep actual bullet caliber as close as possible to bore caliber. Thicker sabots are problematic. Years ago Remington offered a slug using their 50cal 385gr bonded CLHP bullet at 1900 fps. I never shot that slug but i did shoot than bullet in a modern inline 54cal at over 1800fps. That bullet was plain nasty.

I'm going to throw this out there, yrs back I hunted a lot in a few states that were shotgun only seasons
and I spent some money having a custom built slug gun
and after a LOT of trying, the cheapest plain jane rem OLD school slugs ended up shooting the most accurate
like super cheap slugs
I killed a bunch of deer with em too
so All I am going to say is, EVERY gun will like what it likes, so best advice is BUY some and try them and see what YOUR gun shoots the best and don;t get caught up in marketing hype of the latest and greatest most costly ammo out there! some times the older stuff works just as well or better!
my rem 11/87 shoots several brands the same , but seems to like WIN sabots the best but forget exact load, been a few yrs since I shot it
but its many time about trying different brands till you find the one your GUN likes best!

compare your shotgun or rifle or handgun twist rate to the calculated ideal twist rate
