In order to have a safe shoot, Brenneke recommends the following Safety Tips:
Only use Brenneke slugs in modern shotguns known to be in good condition.
Make sure you use the proper length cartridge (2 3/4 inch or 3 inch) your gun is designed for.
Make certain you know if you are shooting a rifled or smoothbore barrel, and using the proper slug. Check with the gun's manufacturer if necessary.
When using a screw-in choke, make sure it is tightened securely. Brenneke recommends chokes no tighter than cylinder bore or improved cylinder when shooting their slugs.
Maximum range of a slug is up to 2000 yards! Be certain of what's behind your target.
