The “Balle Flèche Sauvestre” shotgun slug, for choked or unchoked shotguns, smooth or rifled barrels, includes the loaded cartridge case as well as the complete arrow bullet. Its ballistic assets come from the combination of a sub-caliber arrow with a very hard central nucleus surrounded by a mass of lead alloy and a launch sabot made of two ring-shaped half-shells that guarantee combustion gas-tightness but also the necessary flexibility 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. As soon as it leaves the barrel, the sabot leaves the arrow without disturbing its trajectory that is ensured by the polymer fletching and by the shape of the arrow. The BFS is extremely safe to use and is extremely comfortable to shoot with.
Lead free version
The lead free "Balle Flèche Sauvestre" has the same characteristics as the lead version. Thanks to its non ferrous alloy bimetallic conception, the lead free version possesses ballistic properties close to those of rifle cartridges in terms of velocity and destruction power while being environmentally friendly.
During the impact the bullet body constitution allows a total controlled "mushrooming" generated by the hollow bullet head handled by the internal arrow.
BFS main assets :
• exceptional stopping power with mushrooming (lead free)
• remarkable accuracy up to 100 metres
• maximum security with no splinters and no ricochets
• low recoil : high shooting comfort
