While this is off topic, it might be for a funny read. Today at lunch, someone asked me if you could have a HOLLOW POINT SHOTGUN SHELL. As far as my knowledge goes, you can't. But I just thought that was funny.

Oh, I have been reading some earlier posts, and what crashes with 2.7 where you talking about?

It would take a slug to be HP, and according to some pictures I got it's almost flat when exiting.

beerbaron, you certainly can have a hollowpoint shotgun round, although like Billdog mentioned it would be a slug. In fact, most shotgun slugs these days ARE hollowpoints although the depth of the cavity and style of slug will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

This is the Barnes Expander slug, similar to handgun hollowpoint bullets:

Here is a typical example of a sabot slug and a rifled slug. Note that the loaded shotshell on the right contains a hollowpoint slug while the slug next to the shell is simply "ball":

Rifled slugs generally depend on mass rather than expansion to knock down game (humans included), while sabot slugs which tend to break apart in tissue:

Remington's Copper Solid slugs perform similarily to the Barnes Expanders:

One last example of a rifled slug without a hollowpoint, Remington Sluggers:

Don't ask me why the box says "Hollow Point Rifled Slug", that's the picture that went with the box. /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

Hope this helps.

It most certainly does. Thanks for clearing that up. Could we have some of those in 3.0x?

Damn Gryphon, where do you get all your pics?
You seem to have an endless supply of 'em, and for every topic.
