Lightfield Gets it done for Illinois Late Season Mon, 01 Feb 2016 22:23:04 +0000 My son Kyle took his first Lightfield/Savage deer the first week of January in Illinois. Bitter cold, snow and high winds didn't discourage Kyle - he smoked a nice doe at 70 yards shooting his new Savage 220 Bolt action 20 gauge chambered with 20 ga. Lightfield Hybred EXPs. It was a "straight on" shot, the deer were looking at us. He made a perfect shot, right in the chest — after the shot it stumbled about 10 yards and piled up. Great shot with a great round.

My son Kyle took his first Lightfield/Savage deer the first week of January. Bitter cold, snow and high winds didn’t discourage Kyle- he smoked a nice doe at 70 yards shooting his new Savage 220 Bolt action 20 gauge chambered with 20 ga. Lightfield Hybred EXP. It was a “straight on” shot, the deer were looking at us. Kyle took aim and put the LIghtfield 20 gauge sabot right in the chest. He made a sweet shot, shooting uphill in high grass and high wind, and the doe only stumbled about 10 yards before piling up. Great shot with a great round. Thanks Lightfield- you made my boy’s season!  – Dan, Illinois

Lightfield Announces PRO Hunting Slug Round for Bucks, Boars and Bears Fri, 14 Aug 2015 18:43:48 +0000 ADELPHIA, NJ  – Slug gun hunters know the devastating combination of accuracy and knockdown power afforded by Lightfield’s proven Hybred line of shotgun hunting slugs. These hard-hitting rounds utilize a combination of patented technologies that mechanically fasten the sabot to a 99% pure lead slug that expands to fill the bore of any shotgun barrel upon firing, thanks to its proprietary post wad design.  The result is uncompromising accuracy from a large and heavy projectile that dumps incredible energy and massive expansion into deer-sized game.  Lightfield uses similar technologies in its Commander IDS (Impact Discarding Sabot) Plus slugs, but incorporates a modified sabot design that remains attached to the slug until impact for controlled expansion, increased penetration and devastating bone breaking on the heaviest of big game.

For 2015, Lightfield offers discriminating slug gun hunters a new premiere 12-gauge round that combines the proven IDS design with a lighter, faster, 465-grain pure lead slug that shoots flatter BBB_round_NEWthan a Kansas parking lot.

Like all Lightfield slugs, the new Lightfield Bucks, Boars & Bears (LBBB-12) 2-3/4” 12-gauge slug is designed to chamber to any barrel, ensuring consistent performance in both rifled and smooth bore shotguns.  The speedy LBBB-12 leaves the muzzle at an impressive 1,600 fps with a massive 2,643 ft-lbs of energy, before delivering a staggering 1,094 ft-lbs into its target at 125 yards with a mere ¾” of drop.

“The Bucks, Boars & Bears is the most devastating and accurate shotgun round available for hog hunters,” says Brian Smith, Lightfield’s Director of Marketing and avid pig shooter. “We took the proven, award-winning accuracy and performance of Lightfield’s IDS line of heavy-game ammunition, reduced the weight of the slug slightly and ended up with an ultra-flat-shooting, hard-hitting round that will have hunters makin’ bacon at 175+ yards.”

Bear hunters, too, will quickly come to appreciate the merits of the new Lightfield LBBB-12.  Its impact-discarding sabot design helps control the expansion of the slug upon impact, boring through hide, tough tissue and bone to penetrate deeply where full expansion then occurs.

The Bucks, Boars & Bears round excels in longer-range deer hunting applications as well, courtesy of its flatter trajectory and higher velocity.  Nearly two football fields away, the LBBB-12’s 465-grain high performance projectile retains more than 1,065 ft-lbs of energy to drop a whitetail or pronghorn in his tracks.

The new Bucks, Boars & Bears 12-gauge IDS slug represents the latest innovation in Lightfield’s patented technology for superior performance and downrange accuracy.  Pick up a box and experience for yourself the hardest-hitting, flattest-shooting slug available today.


About Lightfield Ammunition Corporation

Commissioned by the U.S. Marine Corps to design and build a consistently accurate shotgun slug in the 1970s, Lightfield Ammunition Corporation began making its military-inspired technology available to the civilian hunting market in the 1980s.  By the time the proprietary Hybred shotgun slug design was released in 1992, Lightfield engineers had used multiple patented technologies to create a shotgun hunting slug possessing 8 of the 10 basic characteristics of flight – a feat which had never before been accomplished.  Today, Lightfield Ammunition Corporation continues to innovate, offering a full line of 20, 16 and 12-gauge hunting slugs for the discriminating big game hunter – slugs that chamber like a rifle cartridge and provide consistent rifle-like accuracy with the downrange energy, knockdown power and controlled expansion that only a large, pure lead projectile can deliver.  Lightfield sets the standard by which all other slugs are judged.  Learn more at

I love the accuracy… Tue, 17 Mar 2015 14:18:00 +0000 I love the accuracy of these slugs. At 100yd they shoot just as good

as my 7mag does, yes they are a little pricey but its well worth with the

performance these slugs give..last slug I’ll ever shoot 100yd group.

Long shot on a coyote Tue, 06 Jan 2015 21:40:36 +0000 While deer hunting the 2013 Ohio firearms season, a young coyote came in from behind my tree stand on a ridge line. By the time I was aware of him and turned around, he was already at 75 yards and going away. Seeing an opening I picked up him up in my 4X Leupold mounted atop my 12 ga. Remington 1000. I knew he was about 100 yards but had complete confidence in my equipment after extensive range work proved Lightfield Hybrid EXP were the most accurate of 8 brands tested. He dropped at 102 yards.
