This Commander IDS Plus Impact Discarding Sabot round from Lightfield is an excellent choice for hunting big deer or other large game. This example, in 12 gauge, has a 3-1/2" shell loaded with a 1-3/8 Oz saboted slug which it fires at 1890 fps!
The Lightfield Commander IDS PLUS is a controlled expansion, deep penetration, "Heavy Game" slug intended for game of (300lbs or better), thus the IDS PLUS will normally shoot thru deer size game. Muzzle velocities are greater than the Hybred line as is the size of the slug, 600 grain vs the 546 grain of the Hybred. The IDS PLUS is constructed very similar to the Hybred with the post/pressure wad staying locked to the slug to target impact. Again this design aids in stabilizing the slug during flight eliminating tumble and increasing the accuracy at greater distances. The sabot on the IDS is one piece that surrounds the slug and will not discard until target impact. This design aids in the controlled expansion and deeper penetration.
