Remington have announced a very cool looking new sabot slug called the “AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slug”


Looks cool doesn’t it?

It doesn’t just look intimidating, it’s flattening whitetails and competitors in the tipped-slug market with devastating ferocity. Guided by our new Power Portâ„¢ Tip, the AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slug delivers a degree of accuracy and terminal performance unmatched by any other we tested. This masterpiece of aerodynamics consistently prints tiny 100-yard groups and transfers tremendous knockdown force out to the farthest reaches of shotgun range. It’s the largest tipped slug you’ll find anywhere.

In field testing, this huge .58-caliber slug produced gaping wound channels and crumpled every deer it touched with a single shot. From 5 to 200 yards, it yields perfect mushrooms and over 95% weight retention thanks to its spiral nose cuts, bonded construction and high-strength cartridge brass jacket. With performance as revolutionary as its appearance, this is one tip sure to get stunning results. Available in 2 3/4″ or 3″ 12-gauge versions for 2008.

  • 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

    Ok, well I ended up here looking for the ballistics Coefficient for the accutip sabot slugs. I will say that i have been shooting Hornady sst's out of my H&R rifled barrel 12 ga and getting 1-2" groupings at 100 yds consistently. I was looking for the managed recoil copper solids, as the sst's kick like a mule, but no one seems to carry the managed recoil sabots I bought 2 boxes of accutips (and yes, they were on sale 15% off at dick's costing 12$ a box). The stopping power for the accutips seems to be higher at 200 yds, around 1100 lb/sq in, and the muzzle speed is 150 fps less than the hornady's which should translate to lower recoil. I am putting these slugs to the test tomorrow. in the mean time, I believe the accutips are 3.6 in high at 100 yds and 0.0 at 150 but drop 9.1 at 200.. i don't see making 300 yd shots with any level of confidence.. but i could be wrong.
