The Lighfield Commander design incorporates an impact-discarding sabot which. unlike the traditional two piece discarding style, has no effect on the slug's stability. Evident upon the first use, the impact-discarding sabot also produces a controlled expansion slug for deeper penetration in addition to the high degree of stability.

This is one of the Better Slugs for Bear Defense.
Very good balance of size vs. penetration.
Penetration = bone damage and the size= Pain.
The first issue is penetrating all that tough hide then fatty layer and then some very dense and powerful muscle tissue, before a bone can be struck.
Bear Bones are very heavy and dense and can take a pounding, so short of breaking a bone this ammo will at minimum slow a charging bear for a possible follow up life saving shot! I Like to load my 12 gauge with 000 buck for the 1st shot in the face for a possible blinding shot and slow the animal enough to may be escape.
Then the second and 3rd shots are these Babies!
