What's an arrow Slug?

How Big is Your Bullet? - Arrow 'SLUGS' for Dangerous Game

In dangerous game rifle hunting, bullet (slug) weight and bullet penetration potential have a direct correlation. More slug weight = more bullet penetration = more trust.

Think of a .500 NE with a 500 grain solid - everything stops right now.

The same holds true in dangerous game bowhunting. At GrizzlyStik, we gauge our arrows penetration potential on the size of that arrows 'Slug.' We measure the 'Slug' as the broadhead + insert + brass footing.

The heavier an arrow's Slug, the higher the potential for the arrow to penetrate. For example, our 950 grain Cape buffalo system breaks down into a 350-grain arrow - with a 600-grain Slug up front.

We ask our dangerous game customers to think of it this way - You're now shooting a 600-grain bullet and the arrow is now just for guidance and steering system. The Slug does all the penetrating and cutting.

How big of a 'Slug' do you shoot? Perhaps it's time to change your thinking...
