Rottweil Extra Line - Exact Green: a new lead-free slug for hunting

Especially in combination hunting guns, a shotgun slug can be an interesting addition. Since the request for effective lead-free hunting bullets is becoming ever louder, Rottweil has reacted accordingly with the Exact Green. The new shotgun slug in 12 gauge is made from food-safe tin.

This is available in two loads: a 12/70 (2¾ chamber) with regular gas pressure for standard shotguns and a 12/70 (2¾ chamber) with a magnum load (max. 1050 bar) for shotguns proofed for higher pressures. According to the manufacturer, the 25 g projectile should reach about 515 m/s, which yields about 3300 joules of energy. The Magnum version drives the tin projectile with a green plastic tail up to 565 m/s, which means about 4000 joules of energy.

According to the manufacturer, this corresponds to up to 30% more energy into the game body compared to competitors with a Brenneke lead slug. The higher speed results in both a smaller lead factor for fast-moving game and a flatter trajectory. We are looking forward to the first hunting experiences with it.
