Federal Truball Deep Penetrator Rifled Slugs

The Truball Deep Penetrator slugs are 1-ounce, copper-plated lead that bore farther through a target that non-plated, hollow-point slugs.


Featuring a flat-nose, 1-ounce, copper-plated lead slug, Federal Premium’s 12-gauge, 2 3/4-inch Truball Deep Penetrator Rifled Slugs bore farther through a target than the company’s non-plated, hollow-point variants.

The slugs, which utilize the company’s patented Truball technology for optimum accuracy, are propelled to 1,350 fps, creating a muzzle energy of 1,772 ft.-lbs. Federal Truball Deep Penetrator Rifled Slugs are sold in five-count boxes for $6.

Lead slugs have fairly shallow penetration- at close range, 00 buck penetrates deeper. The plating should allow complete pentration of deer from any angle at practical ahotgun ranges.

Comments...Federal used to put out a 1600 FPS velocity version of the Truball Rifled slug. It appears that they have stopped making that faster version. I have written and asked them why but they will not give me an answer. My guess is that it has something to do with the Idiot in the Whitehouse and his equally idiotic vice-moron.

Checking various,not all but various,including Sluggers...Truballs gave me the best group...shots to head at 50' were very tight. As far as the 'kick'...would this indicate a tight seal and more efficient use of the force available.......hmmmm. Anyway I liked them..if and I say if..they are 'dirty'..who cares, unless you are just plinking?

Like the '2 deer' answer. :-) Elk, moose, bear...this is the kind of stuff that REALLY cuts down on my 'need a new gun' reasons to give my wife.

Awfully brief. Is it for rifled or smoothbore barrels? Can't hardly see anything in the picture.
