The Gamespike Shotgun Slug Experiment
This video documents another experimental shotgun slug I came up with. I thought the flared base of the slug would provide stabilization, both from air drag and by acting as a flywheel when the round was fired through a rifled barrel or rifled choke tube, while the narrow core would provide low drag and good penetration. In practice, I couldn’t get them to stabilize, so it’s another idea that didn’t work, but it was an interesting experiment all the same.
Idaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance. As host of TheIdahoanShow on YouTube, I endeavor to produce videos capturing this enduring pioneer spirit, at least as it is practiced by this Idahoan. Of course, shooting and associated ancillary activities are an important part of Idahoan culture, and so many of my videos pertain in some way to the making or testing of firearms and/or ammunition. Here on the Reloaders’ Network, I have endeavored to consolidate this portion of my work as a reference for the reloading community.
