    Thats what I was thinking. Check out the videos. The first one is a pig hunt and x rays, the second one is bear hunt and the last one is a pig and moose hunt where they claim to have used that round. They also recover the round on a couple. I really like the fact there was no bleeding and no overpenetration indicating it transfers 100% energy for an instant kill.

    I've been checking it out since I posted this and it looks like a great round.

    I think the petals of the original Rem copper solids operated the same way in that the petals separated from the round. I think the newer versions copper solids are meant to stay intact.
    Lot's of wasted meat with all that extra shot damaged flesh.. Not that they won't stop a small car.:)

    That was my first thought. Fragments from the tenderloin to the hams.

    I was more or less thinking of this as a round to be used in an instance when you want all the meat destroyed...if you know what I mean. Usually, slugs are associated with overpenetration of a soft target and what I have seen so far is this is not an issue with this round.

    Now slugs are also known for overpenetrating whatever else it could contact like residential construction, which was one of the reasons for the "Polyshock" round. But there was a tradeoff, that round does not penetrate well enough to be considered effective against winter clothing targets.

    I am in the process of looking into this round to confirm whether or not it is safe in a home environment and will not travel through my entire house. I live on about 10 acres and am not really concerned about the neighbors because my closest neighbor is over 600 feet away and I would have to take an oblique shot through my house to even aim at one of my neighbors. I am however very concerned with sheetrock walls, which is why I am in the market for a new defense round in the first place.

    Watched the first video there... I've never hunted pig, but I have a pet mini-pig, and know firsthand they can be tough, stubborn, ballsy little a-holes. Even the small ones.

    But when he took one down, did the other pigs just run in a circle, then stop to glare at him? :eek:

    Note the company is in Latvia. The slugs are steel. I did not see any US distributors listed. That whole steel projectile hurdle they must overcome to gain import rights through BATF. They have got to be expensive :eek:. I can see $5+/rd.

    These are in the US. I was looking though a distributor catalog last night and saw them advertised.

    I'm sure it would, but I think they're trying to avoid over-penetration. Nice avatar by the way.

    Lon,
    I ran across this slug when I was searching for something that would not overpenetrate. I was hoping the polyshok was available for the general public and found this thing. I just thought it was a mean little sucker. You're right, a slug will do the same thing when used against an animal, I was just hoping for a the unicorn of slug rounds. Have something that will kill, but not penetrate 15 walls. Oh well, guess good ol' #4 buck is what I am looking for.
