Many don't recallthat shotgun slugs as we know them today only came about in the early 1930s.But during the depression, sometimes a poor country boy only had an oldsingle-shot shotgun and some small game loads to get meat for the table. If hehad an opportunity to take a shot at a deer,...what did he do? He modified oneof those light game loads by turning it into a "cut shell", creatingan improvised pre-fragmented saboted slug-like projectile. While today's slugammo is more accurate, harder hitting, and preferable in almost every way,...itstill pays to know some of these old frugal tricks.
