Hornady's Custom Lite ammunition line offers shooters high performance and low recoil. Recoil is reduced almost 40%, without sacrificing much velocity, and providing the perfect ammunition for anyone who just doesn't need the extra recoil - women, youngsters, first time shooters, and quick shooting matches.
The 12 gauge Custom Lite Shotgun Slug is a reduced recoil option that is ideal for youngsters, women or anyone looking to tame the recoil of their favorite rifled barrel slug gun. Although extremely effective, 12 gauge slugs deliver a fair amount of recoil - now, hunters have an alternative with the 12 gauge Custom Lite Shotgun Slug that features almost 40% less felt recoil in comparison to standard 12 gauge slug options.
Loaded with the same 300 grain FTX projectile used in the original SST Shotgun Slug, the Custom Lite leaves the muzzle at 1,575 fps, but is a mild recoiling, yet highly effective load capable of taking the largest Midwest whitetail out to 150 yards!
