As a follow up to last year’s introduction of the American Whitetail rifle ammunition, Hornady announced a 12 gauge shotgun slug load in the same ammo line. Â The new shotgun load will be a welcome addition to the hunting ammo choices for hunters who prefer, or are restricted by law, to deer hunting with shotguns.
The new sabot slug is designed for fully rifled shotguns and uses a 325 grain Interlock hollow point bullet. Â The load uses a proprietary buffer that is sandwiched between the slug and the plastic driver in the sabot. Â Hornady claims excellent accuracy from the load. Â Hornady states this is a 200+ yard load.
