    The Gatekeeper slug

    I follow these guys on YouTube as they test some great and less than great stuff. Mostly I like watching stuff explode when shot. This latest copper slug the “Gatekeeper” is probably the best slug I’ve seen. Watch for yourself and see. I can’t imagine what this would do to a hog or other big game animal. Self defense wise it would be a one and done for sure. I’d love to get my hands on some.

    Im betting that would take the gate off as well. I’m thinking bear defense in grizz country as something other than a pistol or OC.

    Looks like a great round. Pretty much 100% weight retained after firing. That would take any animal in North America and most dangerous game around the world if within range.

    That's a great looking round for an under the bed 12ga shot gun.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    Wonder what choke they recommend firing them thru. I'm guessing that they don't want ya using any kind of rifling.

    A straight smooth bore with cylinder choke was used for the making of the video. They did make statements about how accurate it was with a smooth bore and cylinder so they didn’t even test a rifled choke or even a rifled barrel. IMO rifling may only improve the long range distance/ accuracy of it. I’m betting they do another video testing it with rifling.
