How Wicked Are Bolt-Nosed Shotgun Slugs?


What would happen if you put a bolt in a shotgun slug?

Well that is exactly what was done with these crazy home brewed projectiles.

Watch Taofledermaus, our Wide Open Spaces video contributor who’s always in the know with experimental ammo, test out bolt-nosed shotgun slugs and see what these creations can actually do.

So are you tired of those old soft lead foster style shotgun slugs? Well Taofledermaus always has something better to try out.

He does not disappoint us with a machined half ounce aluminum shotgun slugs with a allen bolts tapped into them. This hybrid slug blew threw a tire and a 1.25-inch solid lead disc easily. That is incredible for a shotgun slug. As for a targeted AR500 armor panel, well it did survive this experiment to fight bullets another day.

If you like shotgun slugs you certainly will love the creations that Taofledermaus tests out.
