I recently saw some of these Sabot Light Armor Piercing rounds at a gun show. They were in 7.62 NATO nad appeared to be a solid steel 5.56mm projectile in a .30 cal plastic sabot. Anyone ever tried any of these? What kind of velocity do they achieve with that light round being fired from a 7.62 case? I am assuming they were originally designed for use in LMGs???

Ive seen them years ago! Never used them ? But I do know what you talking about.

Supposedly, there are problems shooting a sabot load if you have a flash suppressor.....dunno, never tried it.....

i've read that these are unstable and start to tumble pretty quickly once they've been fired. so i guess they are not that accurate, OR not as accurate for the price$$$ if you really wanna shoot SLAP, then get a 50 cal. those SLAP rounds work better (more accurate).

The 7.62 S.L.A.P uses a Carbide core with the Sabot and required a faster twist. It was replaced with the M993 jacket carbide core.

What were the penetration specs for it? Muzzle Velocity?
