A slug with an extremely powerful impact effect. When hitting the body, the frontal part of the slug instantly increases from 18.5 to 36-38 mm in diameter – this is the largest slug expansion diameter ever known. It creates an entrance hole with a 3.5 cm diameter, hits powerfully with all its expansion area and disintegrates into six symmetric splinters. The splinter cone causes an extensive area of damage. The unified effect of a hydrodynamic shockwave inside the body, along with splinter damage, ensures an unique instant stopping effect with the Hexolit 32 slug, which provides good results even with imperfect hits.
The main advantages:
- Maximum energy transfer at the moment of hit
- Frontal part of the slug expands to a 36 mm diameter in the moment of impact
- Hydrodynamic shockwave on internal organs
- Extensive splinter cone damage
- Large entrance holes provide massive blood tracks
- Reduced possibility of ricocheting
- Minimal friction in the barrel
- Can be used in all chokes
- Highest accuracy with a 1 mm choke
- Suitable also for rifled barrels
- Not recommended for use in back-bored (increased inner diameter) barrels
Hexolit 32 was created by modifying the Dupo 28 slug. During several hunting seasons, research was conducted on slug hit results and their lethal effects. As a result, effective splinter cone damage performance was discovered. When splintering apart, the frontal part of a Hexolit 32 slug causes a powerful double impact. In case of an imperfect hit, the six splinters and main body of a Hexolit 32 slug still provide extensive lethal damage. Some of the splinters reach vital organs and prevent the animal from escaping. Three splinters usually travel up and damage the spine and nerves next to it, paralyzing the animal and denying its possibility to move. Despite its large entrance hole, a Hexolit 32 slug does not cause extensive damage to game animal's meat. The combined and powerful impact effect stops cardiac functions and the circulatory system so quickly that there are no blood effusions usually created by imperfect rifle bullet hits. Thanks to its accuracy and effectiveness, Hexolit 32 is the most efficient ammunition now available. The flawless slug quality complies with the choice of the most demanding hunters.
A year-old wild boar was shot from a 50 m distance. The Hexolit 32 slug hit the abdomen. Despite imperfect shot placement, the animal was stopped instantly. Later, X-ray examination revealed all parts of the slug. Three splinters along with the main slug body had traveled 19-26 cm in length and stopped under the skin on the opposite side. One splinter had pierced all the way through the abdomen and stopped in the leg tendons. The remaining two splinters had done the main job – they were stuck into the spine. The overall slug impact effect was instant – there was no agony.
