i have a few boxe of FEDERAL rifled slugs just wondering what the grain on slugs is
Slug weight is typically in ounces, and you will find them from 1oz up to 2oz magnums..
..assuming you are talking about 12 gauge..
1 oz = ~437.5 gr
I've seen 12 gauge as light as 7/8 ounce, never seen a 2 ounce. Who loads them?
yea i was talking about 12 gauge
7/8 ounce to 1 1/4 ounce are the ones I've seen in a 12 ga Foster or Brenneke slug.
I don't recall who made the 2oz...It's been a while, and they may not be in production any more, I'll dig around and find the answer for you guys...
I remember now that Dixie does have a slug that comes in at 870 grains, just a hair under 2 ounces.
7,000 grain = pound
437.5 grain = 1 ounce
A while back I had a slug (the lead part only - not a complete round)
Just holding it in my hand along side a complete cartridge of a 9MM & .45 ACP makes me understand why I never want to be on the other end of this monster.
If there is such a thing as a one shot stop - this has to be one of them.
One shot stops happen every now and again...there is no round that will guarantee one, except maybe a JDAM...I have need guys walk off .50BMG hits....I've seen a guy have his arm torm off by a 25mm hit and run away...
I am not disagreeing with you in any way -
But I think it matters how we define one shot and how we define stop.
I was thinking about the shot as a hit COM - and a stop = the person stops fighting.
How often does someone get hit COM with a .50BMG and keep fighting? Or Walk it off?
Sure it must have happened - 1 in 100? 1,000? 10,000? dunno:
The odds are against you BIG time.
