$ 29.99

Engel Ballistic Research is proud to introduce our 12 Gauge Expanding Slug for home defense and hunting applications. This slug will expand out to 1.4325" on impact with soft tissue. The maximum expansion of this devastating round allows for an extreme transfer of energy. Please watch our ballistic gel test video for a demonstration of this energy transfer.

Designed for hunting and defensive applications, Engel Ballistic Research (EBR)'s 12 Gauge Expanding Slug is 435 grains of copper traveling at over 1,200 feet per second. Upon impact the hollow point slug expands to more than 2x its original size, creating a devastating wound channel and rapidly transferring its energy into its target.
