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.
