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.

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.

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.

Why no rifling?
I would guess (and it's just a guess) that the spinning would tend to break off petals of the slug when it enters the target. I could be wrong.

Thanks for the info Bull!

Where did you find out about it?
There was a link in the comment section of the video to the actual company and on their website they had a six month backlog notice.

I deleted spam links in a necro thread yesterday. They post on here, and come back a month or so later to edit and add spam.

Been watching a few new profiles for that exact same thing.
