    To me it seems that the Exotic loads are for the guys who are really new to shotguns.

    I never bought them and most likely never will but the bolo rounds in a center mass hit must be pretty effective. I would definitely not want someone shooting them at me.

    Back around 1999 I found some Hornady slugs that were full jacketed hollowpoints. I thought that if you could remove the lead leaving the copper jacket and use BB's and epoxy resin to make a "Mag-Safe/Glaser" that it would be pretty nasty. They aren't all that great in duty sized rounds but a 12 gauge sized slug would be something else entirely.

    I think the exotic makers must have read my mind because a couple years later they came out with the "Terminator" which is pretty much a frangible shotgun slug. I didn't watch the vids above yet but I wonder if anyone has ever tested them in ballistic gel?
