Here’s The Best Shotgun Slug You’ve Probably Never Heard Of…The Gatekeeper

The point of using a slug in a shotgun is to not only stop whatever you are aiming at, but also to cause the maximum amount of traumatic damage as possible. Now, ’00 Buckshot’ can do the job, but if you really, really wanted to destroy your target, then maybe you should try the ‘Gatekeeper’. This little beast has an all copper hollow point, 8 petal design and it really can do some very serious damage. But, don’t take my word for it, watch the video below and see for yourself!

Here is a little bit of info on this ammunition:

“The Gatekeeper” bullets are precision CNC machined, lead free, solid copper expanding projectiles.  The projectile expands 3X the size while maintaining nearly 100% of its original weight.  Each “Gatekeeper” projectile has been engineered to perform in a given velocity range to provide unparalleled performance across a wide variety of calibers and weapons platforms.  This projectile is used for personal protection, provides equivalent and often superior performance to market leaders in the 12 gauge slug market.  The “The Gatekeeper” projectile is available for both public and law enforcement purchasing.  The bullet is designed to create maximum cavitation upon entry into the body and expend all its energy inside the target. The combination of maximum stopping power with minimal over-penetration makes it an ideal choice for personal protection.
