Stay on the safe side. In every situation.
No kidding: If you take the "big pill", you want big impact – with as little risks and side effects as possible. The BRENNEKE slug is designed for huge mass stopping power that excels the impact of any bullet – on drive hunts as well as on African big game. And it comes with an important safety factor for hunters: since it flies at a relatively slow speed a diverted slug can be heard easily. On the other hand: supersonic bullets cannot be heard which is why even splinters may cause severe or even fatal injuries. In other words: before firing a bullet, the hunter has to take care of security and a necessary backstop. Read more
Best Ballistic Data. Proven a million times.
Shuttlecock and slug ammunition, is it absurd to compare the two? As a matter of fact, their ballistic principle is very similar: the centre of gravity lies at the front.
As part of the typical BRENNEKE design the trajectory is stabilized by a plug. It also shows angular ribs to avoid a spin and ensure a smooth choke passage. The result: even heavy game will be stopped reliably on a shooting distance of 50 meters.

Depending on the manufacturer, the acceptable diameter of a cal. 12 shotgun barrel is between 18,2 and 18,9 mm. Therefore, Brenneke provides a broad range of cartridges for every hunter to try different variations and find out the best possible solution. Five-shot groups of less than 10 cm at 100 m are possible from modern shotguns using Brenneke slugs.
A common misconception is that slugs tend to ricochet more than rifle cartridges. Investigations by renowned trade journals and research institutes do not confirm this. Even if slugs do not break up, they do not represent any larger danger than rifle cartridges, from which even the smallest splinter leads to incalculable risk.
While the German Federal Hunting Law requires a minimum energy of 2000 joules at 100 m for rifle rounds, slugs are not subject to this regulation! The legislator has recognised that slugs have a more-than-adequate effect due to their design. Therefore, the “Brenneke” can be used on any game animal without restriction.
