These are some Winchester Super-X 12 gauge 2.75″ 1 oz. rifled soft lead HP slugs that I picked up at Wal-Mart at about $3/5-pack. I have to admit, they are loaded hot for only being a 2.75″ case. They kick pretty hard, move quite fast (listed at 1600 fps), and hit like a small meteor. I shot one of them through this pair of water-soaked phone books at about 10 yards. The expansion was severe on the exit side… heck, even the entry wound had shock ripples around it. So far, I have run about 30 of these slugs through my gun. The rounds all fed, fired and ejected nicely in my 18.5″ 870 Express. I would not hesitate to use them for home defense or hunting applications. Great stuff at a great price.

I shot these very same slugs, also purchased from Wal-Mart, just yesterday. WOW. These are substantial! Actually, inspite of knowing their 1600 fps velocity, I was not expecting the kick I experienced through my 181/2 SG. Great pictures. Great ammo.
Holy hole! That’s impressive. I took some of those on a camping trip into Grizzly country this last summer. This is a good reassurance that they really can do some serious damage.
