Remington’s 12-gauge AccuTip Saboted Slugs are quite popular for hunters across the nation who choose to hunt with shotguns. The 385-grain saboted slug normally features an advertised muzzle velocity of 1900 fps and the slugs themselves feature a great combination of both accuracy and terminal performance down range. As with any type of cartridge, an inconsistent or improper propellant charge could lead to either an overpressurization event or a situation where the slug may not make its way all the way out of the barrel (known as a squib) which also poses a danger to the operator should it go unnoticed.
