Our Javelin slugs are designed to travel long distances with minimal influence from external factors. To do this, we’ve incorporated a tangent ogive and smooth shank which reduce drag through the air. We’ve also ensured that the 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? We bet you won’t find a more devastating hunting slug! The combination of soft lead, a deep hollow point and a 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.
We’ve published Ballistic Coefficient data for all our slugs to help you predict the trajectory & retained energy at any distance. We’ve also published this information on the Strelok Pro app, which turns your smartphone into a ballistics solver. However, our data was calculated under specific atmospheric conditions with specific barrels, and results may vary as these conditions change. We suggest using the “trajectory Calibration” feature on your ballistic solver to true your BC and validate your trajectory.
