Will SBE slug bbl handle 3.5" slugs?


Recommended Posts

From what I can find on their web sight their slug bbl will only handle 3"rounds. There are now 3.5 sabots on the market. Why would they limit the full potential of this weapon? Are they planning to make them with 3.5" chambers? If they are I will hold off buying one.

Also, Do you need to replace the forend? I am getting conflicting info.

Any help appriciated

Yes, the standard slug barrel will only handle 3" but you can shoot the longer slugs through the smooth bore.

From all the testing I've seen, the 3.5" is less accurate and doesn't provide much of a benefit in the form of flatter trajectory, more velocity, or more energy. Of course you pay for anything added with my recoil.


I do feel that they will eventually offer this, even though I feel it'll reduce the accuracy of the shorter loads since the slug will have to "jump" onto the rifling...
