This shell is loaded with a rifled slug, specifically. That means the lead projectile is surrounded with oblique grooves which enable it to safely clear a smoothbore shotgun’s choke tube. The aerodynamic slug exhibits good in-flight rotational stability courtesy of its hollow base, which places its center of mass toward its tip. A Tornado slug’s hinged wad serves to absorb a noticeable amount of felt recoil as it collapses during ignition.
This shell is equipped with a clear plastic hull for ease of identification, as well as a non-corrosive primer and charge of low residue powder. Sterling ammunition is made by Turac of Turkey, a major small arms ammo supplier that exports their goods to over 50 countries worldwide.
