Nothing hits like a 12 gauge slug. Well, maybe the .50 BMG but that is a totally different league. But in terms of ‘normal’ calibers, the 12 gauge slug hits like a freight train. Shatter engine blocks: check. Split bowling pins: check. Turn bad guys inside-out: double check.
Long before the Modern Sporting Rifle became a standard item in the trunks of every police cruiser, the scattergun reigned supreme. But it was hampered by very limited effective range and terrible accuracy. Enter the rifled slug.
The rifled slug is moderately well suited to add reach to the smoothbore shotgun, although it has nowhere near the reach of, say, a .223 carbine. But what it does do incredibly well is break stuff. Stuff like car door, walls, furniture, etc. It also breaks body armor, should the need arise. And even if it didn’t break the body armor, the recipient of the slug would wish it had.
The problem with shooting slugs is that they are just so dang punishing when you shoot 3” magnum rounds. I mean, just brutal. The shooter only comes out marginally better than whatever is on the receiving end. But Federal Premium Tactical LE is available in 2 ¾”, pushing a 1 oz. slug at 1,300 fps and 1,650 ft. lbs of energy at the muzzle, with considerably less pain at the collar bone.
If you need to crumple up a black bear or a bad guy, this is just the ticket to do it. Get it now at a very affordable price while it lasts.
