Javelin slugs are designed to travel long distances with minimal influence from external factors. To do this, they have incorporated a tangent ogive and smooth shank which reduce drag through the air. Weight distribution and balance provides stable flight, even in turbulent conditions. This ensures an optimum BC across a broad range of barrel designs, twist rates and velocities.
Plan on hunting? These are devastating in delivering energy! The combination of soft lead, deep hollow point and large meplat mean that explosive expansion takes place on impact, dumping most of its energy within the first few inches. Exactly what's required for small game hunting.
From Matt Dubber:
For the past year we have been working extremely hard behind the scenes on scaling up production without sacrificing quality, and are proud to be able to bring what we feel are some of the best slugs in the world to retailers all over the globe for reasonable prices. And of course, we practice what we preach – All the slugs you have seen Gerhard, Roelf and myself shooting on our YouTube channels over the past year (including the 200m+ shots and the ‘explosions’ of all those poor sparrows) have all been made using Javelin slugs – Some would say the proof is in the pudding, but we like to say that the ‘proof is in the poof’.
