Javelin Slug 34gr .217
RA4 BC: 0.105
Average BC calculated at 950fps (20°C / 68°F at sea level)
Javelin slugs are designed to travel long distances with minimal influence from external factors. To do this, incorporated is a tangent ogive and smooth shank which reduce drag through the air. Also, it has been ensured that the weight distribution and balance provides stable flight, even in turbulent conditions. This ensures an optimum BC across a broad range of barrel designs, twist rates and velocities.
Plan on hunting? Bet you won’t find a more devastating hunting slug! The combination of soft lead, a deep hollow point and a large meplat mean that explosive expansion takes place on impact, dumping most of its energy within the first few inches – Exactly what’s required for small game hunting.
Patriot Outdoors SA has published Ballistic Coefficient data for all their slugs to help you predict the trajectory & retained energy at any distance. They’ve also published this information on the Strelok Pro app, which turns your smartphone into a ballistics solver. However, their data was calculated under specific atmospheric conditions with specific barrels, and results may vary as these conditions change. They suggest using the “trajectory Calibration” feature on your ballistic solver to true your BC and validate your trajectory.
