TarHunt is a gun company located in Bloomsburg, PA. They specialize in making rifled slug guns. They also make a very interesting 20 ga. slug load called Schrifle. Basically it is a non-sabot projectile loaded into a 20 gauge plastic hull with the bullet sticking out of the hull (just like rifle cartridges are loaded). Obviously, these rounds are intended to be shot from rifled 20 gauge barrels.
The projectile itself is a hollow point lead-free slug called Raptor. The manufacturer has been experimenting with different weights, but right now only the 239 grain projectiles are available with a muzzle velocity of 2150 fps. The pack of ten rounds has a price tag of $45.
We now have shotguns that shoot like rifles, crossbows that shoot like shotguns, and compounds that shoot like crossbows. At what point do we tell people that technology is to much, and you need to improve your hunting skills to take your animal? The main reason I switched to a re-curve bow this year is to challenge myself and improve as a hunter.
Should these new bullets be legal in shotgun only states? Or do you agree with me that we should rely on ability and not technology to have a true fair chase harvest?
