For all those shotguns owners out there like myself, we’re always in search of the latest and greatest. Well everybody, for those who haven’t heard, there have been some new gadgets added to the toy box of shotgun goodies!
No longer do you have to hassle with multiple barrels if you switch between shot and slug depending on the season. Winchester has just released a Non-Lead Zinc Slug! At last, a slug that is fast, effective and most of all usable in all states! Non-toxic bullets are a requirement in many parts of California as part of the fight to keep the Condors safe. Now you can buy both shot and slugs that are safe for the condors and the environment.
The other benefit to these new zinc slugs is that aside from being lead free, they’re usable in Smoothbores! No need for rifled barrels just for slugs. These 12-gauge slugs are 3/4oz, .72 caliber and a muzzle velocity of 1400 feet per second! They don’t expand a lot but they do penetrate deeper which make them great for larger game, and the price is reasonable. Check out these new slugs at Winchester today, New for 2011!
