Well... I kinda like the idea of being useful at longer ranges. And I don't much care for the idea of having a barrel that I can't use because I don't have any ammo suitable for it. I'd like to have a few boxes of sabot slugs on hand.
I don't mind rolling my own, but I hadn't actually considered that. My shotgun press has been collecting dust for years. The last time I looked,

Thanks to all. I'm still interested in commercial ammo, but I'd greatly appreciate tips on finding components and/or recipes. The Lee slug mold looks interesting...
