Sabot slug performance
Bagged a doe Thanksgiving Day and I was able to recover the slug. The slug entered high in the chest area. Hitting the underside of the spine severing the cord and then took out the upper portion of the lungs. The slug then cracked the other side of the ribs and stopped just under the skin.
Not too often a slug recover can be made and thought it was interesting to see the devastating performance of the sabot slug.

I'd hate to be on the business end of that thing. Did it damage any loin meat?

Minimal meat damage since it went under the loins.

They can do a trick on deer. I load 300 grain hornady 45 cal XTP bullets in my 20 ga loads using CCS sabots and have shot many deer with that load but have recovered only one slug so far. It was a 4 point buck quartering toward me at 60 yards. The bullet entered the right shoulder going through the shoulder blade traveling the full length of the deer hitting the left leg just below the ball joint shattering the bone then stopping in the flesh after that. Mushrooms nicely and weighed in at 292.7 grains. Muzzle velocity is a little over 1500 fps.

Looks like it worked perfectly.
