If it's anything like their other lathed steel slugs then it's a post machined in the base of the projectile that's press fit into the plastic base.  It takes some pressure to put on but can pop off with enough resistance.






If I'm not mistaken a Brenneke (sp?) slug's stabilizing base is held on with a wood screw. Probably the same here with a precast plastic base held in place by a screw with no turning needed.

    As sexy as those slugs are... and they are flippin' Kathy Ireland before we heard her voice sexy... the Kaviar makes my black heart skip a beat.

    Slug... that splits off buck when hitting fluid mass.

    That's.  Just.  NASTY!

    I saw that. Looks like a better engineered "hillbilly slug" (pouring wax over birdshot).
    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    Nothing says "sit down, son" like a slug launching submunitions inside of your torso.

    I don't think that you are mistaken, about the spelling or the construction.  IIRC the original Brenneke had a cork base held in place with simple wood screw.

    Probably the same here with a precast plastic base held in place by a screw with no turning needed.

    Very likely.  If they are spinning these off on a lathe anyway, it would be very easy to cut a groove or thread in the base, and then plug the piece into a die that injects the plastic right around it.

    You know, Brenneke makes slugs for other purposes than hunting.

    Those were BRI sabot rounds. That scene was cool but they would not sail clear through an engine block.

    But that's Hollywood for ya.

    As for the Freedom Arms, it wasn't "too big" to hold 6. Too powerful would have been the more accurate reply. Was also long before Ruger came out with the SRH in .454.
