Hornady is known as an industry leader in creating innovative products that work. The Lite Shotgun Slugs are no different. Hunters know how effective a 12 gauge slug is for harvesting whitetail deer, however, that effectiveness comes at the price of heavy recoil to get maximum performance. Hunters now have a great alternative with the SST Lite Shotgun Slug. This load is ideal for youth, women or anyone looking to tame the recoil of their rifled barrel shotgun. This ammunition delivers up to 30% less felt recoil when compared to standard 12 gauge slug loadings. This load is loaded with a 300 grain slug that leaves the barrel at 1575 giving a capable range of 150 yards. This mild recoil of this load is perfect for gaining confidence in your slug gun by being able to practice at the range and not developing a flinch from heavy recoil.
