Federal gets the message - New Deep Penetrator Rifled Slug

Federal Ammunition seems to have finally gotten the message. As many hunters have learned, traditional soft lead thimbles AKA rifled slugs tend to flatten out on the gristle shield of a large boar hog leaving a wounded and potentially dangerous animal. Just how much better performance this higher antimony swaged slug will offer remains to be seen. Certainly it will not be on par with factory loaded hard cast - heat treated - full bore solid shotgun slugs.

Hope it comes in at a good price point. FWIW, I have not had issues with slugs on 200 (+) lbs hogs. Never popped one over 225 though.

A hard cast 730 grain Dixie Slugs Terminator @ 1250 fps will give complete penetration directly through the gristle plates and shoulders of a big hog.
