Thug Slug 28ga 5/8oz (25/package)
The Thug Slug is one of our most advanced slug designs to date. Over the course of over 40 years of lab and field testing, we've seen and shot countless slug designs. Nothing has performed like the Thug Slug.
The Thug series of slugs was thus named by one of the guys in our plant. His words were, "Thugs are flat-nosed, hard-hitting fighters." The name just stuck. The guys in our ballistic lab are also crowing about the performance of the Thug Slug series because they satisfy all the critical criteria of a superior shotshell projectile:
*Hard-hitting performance in every size and weight.
*Precise accuracy from both rifled and smoothbore barrels.
There is a slug in this series for almost every type of slug shooter and slug-oriented game. The net result is what you've come to expect: tight target groupings and hard hitting, knock-down performance in both smoothbore and rifled barrels. The Thug Slug series is available in four different variations:Features:
- Unitized one-piece design.
- Easy to load: Roll or Fold crimp.
- Double-reinforced gas seal.
- Quad-buckle self-adjusting cushion system.
- Rifled ribbing engages rifling and reduces the friction of bore-contact.
- Flat-nose design increases relative shock power and allows for easy loading.
- Hollow-point design for maximum impact and rapid energy transfer.
- Wad Weight = 31 grains
- Slug Weight = 263 grains
- Total Weight = 294 grains
Energy damping crush-sections absorb setback forces, enabling the projectile to stabilize earlier in the propulsion cycle. Successfully utilized used in both rifled and non-rifled shotguns.
*Industry-accepted tolerances apply to all weights and measures.
WARNING: When loading slug components with an inherent gas seal, the entire slug component must be nudged down with your reloading press' rammer tube. Many loaders complain that they don't have enough room for a crimp. This tells us that the reloader is NOT pushing down on the slug prior to crimping and thus not properly seating the slug on the powder. Depending on your loading tool, these loads may require a series of nudges to allow the powder to enter and fill the concave (cupped) plastic gas seal. If you don't do this, then you'll get the "no-fit" problem or a failed load when the powder refuses to fully ignite. Burned or punctured gas seals is almost always a result of this user error.
