Our low or reduced recoil, full length, slug is specifically engineered to improve a shooter’s capabilities with a shotgun. Loaded to produce a 40% reduction in recoil but still be a ballistic equivalent to the U.S. Army Cavalry carbine loads made for the venerable .45-70 Government, our slug has plenty of power to get the job done but not torture your shoulder. The 1 1/4 ounce (525 grain) slug has a muzzle velocity of 1,000 fps through a 19" barrel which delivers 1,116 foot/pounds energy, about 1 1/2 times that of a .44 magnum. Our tactical Sabot Slug was specifically designed to overcome the shortcomings of commercially available, 'punkin ball,' slugs. This sabot slug can pass through any choke AND can be used in both smoothbore and rifled barrels. No matter what standard chamber length 12 gauge you own this round can go through it. The projectile itself has an outside diameter of .683" or to put it another way, its diameter BEFORE impact is similar to that of a .44 Magnum AFTER it has expanded all the way. The reduced muzzle blast is important in an enclosed area, inside of a building, for instance. The reduced recoil aids in controllability and provides for a quicker follow-up shot.
