Right in time for the upcoming deer hunting season Hornady introduces the new SST™ Shotgun Slug. With this new slug long range accuracy from a shotgun slug has become obtainable.
There was a time when hunting deer with a shotgun slug meant that getting in close to the game was a must. Those days are over. Hornady’s NEW SST™ Shotgun Slug transforms your favourite rifled barrel slug gun into a weapon that will outperform some centerfire rifles.
Hornady’s NEW SST™ Shotgun Slug allows you to bring unheard of accuracy and terminal performance to slug-only areas. The super-accurate SST™ bullet delivers sub-2" groups at 100 yards; and the flattest trajectory on the market.
The polymer tip of Hornady’s field-proven SST™ help it slice through the air, minimizing drop and wind drift. And, when the bullet strikes its target, the tip initiates violent expansion, transferring its energy payload to the target, ensuring a swift kill.
This season, step up to Hornady’s NEW SST™ Shotgun Slug and revolutionize your slug hunting experience and success.
The specs for the new slug are as follows according to Hornady:
The slug is available in 12 gauge, 2-3/4" length with a 300 grain SST bullet .500".
Velocity at muzzle 2000fts. (1341fts. At 200 yards). Energy (ft/lbs) at the muzzle 2664 and still has left 1198 ft/lbs. At 200 yards. Trajectory: Zeroed in at 150 yards. -0.9” at the muzzle, +2.4” at 50 yards, +2.7” at 100 yards, 0.0” at 150 yards and -6.7” at 200 yards.

I am looking forward to put this new slug through its paces in my Savage Model 210F Slug Warrior, given that this gun is a specialized centerfire rifle like slug gun I expect the new Hornardy SST™ slug to perform very well.
