How Much Damage Can Handmade HDPE Shotgun Slugs Do?

HDPE, or high-density polyethylene, is basically really strong plastic. Recycling and using it is a fascinating process that you can learn all about from Atomic Shrimp.

Here’s what it can do to clay, a gummy bear, and a jug!

When Taofledermaus received these HDPE slugs from Atomic Shrimp, all the way from Britain, you bet he was thrilled to experiment with them! Interestingly, he concludes that these HDPE slugs are significantly more accurate than the Brenneke slugs he tested just a little while earlier. Some video commenters even suggested that with their accuracy and slim chance of penetrating beyond their target, these slugs might be ideal from home defense ammunition.

Either way, we just can’t get enough of Taofledermaus and his slow-motion videos of pretty much every experimental shotgun slug you can, and can’t, imagine.

Will you send a slug to be featured on “You Make It, We Shoot It”?
