One of the most POWERFUL slugs we have shot! – L-5 Sabot Slug!

Boris from Russia sent us some saboted steel slugs called Leningradka-5 or L-5 for short. These have a modified diabolo shape (like an air rifle pellet) but are completely solid. The slugs are designed for smooth-bore shotguns and do not need spin for stability. I loaded these using advice Boris gave me such as powder loads to reach optimum velocity. The 30 grain load gave the slugs an estimated velocity of between 1,600 to 1,700 feet/sec. Thank you for taking the time to rate the video! We love to hear your suggestions and many videos are based on viewers’ ideas.
