    Russian “Twister” slug. Nasty.

    Broke this bad boy in this evening. I got four center cores for it making it a 3, 4, 5, or 6 segmented slug.

    Nasty. Nasty. Nasty.

    Are those segmented slugs rated for Zombies?

    like to see some after being fired, to see how well they expand, but want some of these even more

    Leon,

    I'm a dummy, I thought the segments were meant to separate from the core. Looks like you have a large bore, lead Barnes Expander boolit.

    I like that the slug stay together. Probably more deadly that way - especially for larger hogs. A harder alloy will no doubt have segments brake off and produce "secondary projectiles".

    That's pretty impressive BT, what was your load?

    That is one interesting slug. Is that for a 12 ga you got there? Do they make it for 10ga?
