Poor man’s shotgun slugs

This is pretty interesting…I certainly didn’t know when slugs were invented…makes sense, given the old “buck and ball” shot (well, not just old, you can still get it). Anyway, these are known as “Cut Slugs.” They’re a field expedient alternative shotgun slug. These munitions were used back before true slug munitions were available.

I’m not terribly sure why sometimes they just randomly open up with the rifles, unless it’s to contrast the effectiveness of the Cut Slug.

    That’s cool, but I wonder, since back in the day, most hulls were either brass or paper, how well this technique worked?

    Incidently, the Foster type slug was put up in ’31, but the Brenneke (my favorite) has been with us since 1898.

    I do believe I’m going to give that a try.

    Chris Costa showed how to do that in the Magpul shotgun dvd. It’s great if you need a slug and don’t have one.
