PostSubject: Pumpkin Killer slugs-- Video   June 1st 2017, 8:07 pm

I have been a Shotgun guy for 50 years.


I have a fascination with anything that will pass through the bore. Slugs, Buck, .69 round ball, Buck and Ball--- on and on. I've posted most of this on other blogs.

But I just got new video.

Got the kid to take some video of my home made Pumpkin Killer slugs in action. They are a un split long range wad with loose shot and a cap glued on top. They explode inside the target. These are 1 1/2 gal jugs of water at about 20'.
Sorry the link was bad. will try latter.

 I got to test my loads on something other than paper. Got a better idea of what they do.

I got 2 pumpkins about 20 lb each. Hit each with 1 round at 30'. I filled each with water through small holes on top.


#1 shows size with thermos . (the thermos has had a hard life)

#2 is the front of my Win PDX 12 copy. Buck and slug.

#3 is the back (exit) of the PDX.

#4 is the back of the pumpkin slug. You see the front in the other shot.

The frangible slug comes apart in side the target.

PDX punched through.

I hit them both a little higher than I wanted but I don't think that mattered !

I am happy with both. Good day at the range.

 .69 round ball at 50 yards

This is off hand at 50 yards from a 18" cylinder bore.  Next time I will try the kids 28" imp.

Sorry. I was going to post some video but turned out it might have bugs so I pulled it. When my tec guy/son in law gets back I will find a safe way to do it.
