The Balle Flèche Sauvestre Shotgun Slugs are made in France and are designed and shoot like a tank sabot round.
I’m not going to go into much detail about the Balle Flèche Sauvestre Shotgun Slugs because these two videos do that for me. If you want to find out more you can have a peek at the manufacturer’s website. If you’re into crazy shotgun rounds have a look at the Fiocchi Chemical Tracer.
Century Arms is the exclusive importer of Sauvestre ammunition which is produced at their factory in France. Sauvestre is the leader of high ballistic performance ammunition which combine accuracy, efficiency and security. The different types of B.F.S. “Balle Flèche Sauvestre” cartridges available are 12 Ga. 2 ¾”, 12 Ga. 2 ¾” Mini Mag, 12 Ga. 3″ Magnum, 20 Ga. 3″, 12 Ga. 3″ Magnum and 20 Ga. 2 ¾”. For choked or unchoked shotguns, with smooth or rifled barrels, includes the loaded cartridge case as well as the complete arrow bullet. Its ballistic qualities come from the combination of a sub-caliber arrow with very hard central nucleus surrounded by a mass of lead or non-lead alloy and a launch sabot, made of two ring-shaped half shells that guarantee combustion gas tightness, but also the flexibility needed to go down the barrel. The double chamber at the back of the sabot regulates the expansion of combustion gases on firing and reduces recoil.
