My new favorite slugs

This caught my attention last Fall and I made a point of doing gelatin tests, then meeting DDupleks crew at SHOT show. 20ga slug is only 19.5g (2/3 oz) and its velocity is 450m/s (1475fps), so the recoil impulse is relatively light. Since each projectile is CNC machined from steel, its “petals” pivot against pre-set points and open up consistently without fragmenting. Expanded diameter is about 1 1/8″.

Give the miserable performance of generic hollow point slugs in 20ga (shallow penetration with excessive fragmentation) or the commonly available #3 buckshot (again, inadequate penetration), this makes my 870 Youth rather more useful.

    I have an adorable little youth size 870 20ga. as well. I may have to pick some of these up and see how they go.

    Do they come in .410? My son has a Taurus Judge for which this round would be awesome.

    Что-то они мне напоминают некошерные пули “дум-дум” 😉

    А вообще, для чего нужны ТАКИЕ пули?
