Winchester Defender 20 Gauge Segmenting Slug

Winchester segmenting slug

New for 2014 is a segmenting slug for the 20 gauge from Winchester Ammunition.  The new Winchester Defender Segmenting Slug is a 3/4 ounce slug that is engineered to break into three large chunks when striking the target.  These pieces form three distinct wound channels, causing rapid incapacitation.

Below is a video showing the new Defender Segmenting Slug in action:

I’ve always felt that the 20 gauge shotgun makes a great home defense weapon.  I’ve got mine loaded with #3 buck.  However, this load looks like a winner.  I hope to put hands on some and see how it works for myself.  If it functions reliably, this could be my new home defense shotgun load.

    Looks like the old “Quik-Shok” slugs to me. Always thought it was a good idea. Suprised it took this long for someone to pick it up and run with it.
