AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slug Available

January 05, 2009

Madison, N.C. – In 2009, Remington rocked the slug hunting world with the introduction of the 12 gauge Premier AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slug. Now hunters can obtain the same levels of accuracy, flat trajectory and devastating downrange energy in a 20 gauge offering. Many slug hunters across the nation appreciate the benefits of a lightweight 20 gauge platform. Now, Remington® Premier AccuTip provides a new dimension of performance in 20 gauge shotgun slugs.

As the name implies, the Premier AccuTip is the most accurate sabot slug available. The secret behind the superior accuracy lies within the design of its patent-pending PowerPort™ Tip. Composed of a high strength polycarbonate, this unique tip controls aerodynamic properties, balancing the slug and enhancing accuracy. Laboratory tests have proven the Premier AccuTip to be twice as accurate as the next best competitor!

The extreme performance of Premier AccuTip doesn’t stop with accuracy. Precision spiral nose cuts combined with the bonded brass jacket construction provides superior controlled-expansion characteristics. Premier AccuTip consistently expands at all ranges from 5 to 150 yards with over 95% weight retention for tremendous energy transfer and penetration.

A close examination of the big game record books quickly reveals one strikingly consistent fact; the overwhelming majority of trophy book whitetails are found in slug-only states. Why stake your hunt on inferior shotgun slugs? When the buck of a lifetime steps out at 150 yards, go ahead and squeeze the trigger! Remington Premier AccuTip Bonded Shotgun Slugs provide big-game hunters with the perfect combination of superior accuracy and controlled expansion with devastating on game performance.
