Galactic Horizon 12Gauge Shotgun Shells

In YE 40 Galactic Horizon began expanding into the shotgun market and decided to manufacture their own ammunition. Below is a list of the produced shells along with relevant information for them. The shells are easily identified by a combination of their brightly-coloured polymer sections and then the blocky, easy-to-read text printed on the side. Despite the internal components of each specific shell varying they all feature a biodegradable cup/wad in addition to using non-poisonous metals for the projectiles themselves.

Lite-Shot

A green 12-gauge shotgun shell that uses small Durandium Alloy pellets and relatively low-velocity gunpowder, generally used for hunting small game and pest-control.

  • Size: 0.62 inches (15.4 mm) diameter, 2.36 inches (60 mm) length
  • Caliber: 12 gauge
  • Damage Description: Peppers targets with small wounds
  • Effective Range: 45 meters
  • Muzzle Velocity: 1,000 fps
  • Muzzle Blast: A cone of fire erupts from the weapon’s barrel with each shot as escaping gasses are burnt off.
  • Recoil: Minimal
  • Energy Source: Chemical
  • Price (100 round box): 40ks/80rn/refer to here for currency exchange

Subsonic Scatter-Shot

A black 12-gauge shotgun shell that uses lower-velocity powder and heavy 000 Nerimium buckshot to remain subsonic unlike its predecessors.

  • Size: 0.62 inches (15.4 mm) diameter, 2.36 inches (60 mm) length
  • Caliber: 12 gauge
  • Damage Description: Rips into targets.
  • Effective Range: 45 meters

.45 Flogger

A white shotgun shell featuring a hollow-point 11.5x43mm "Slugger" round packed inside a scored, non-discarding Durandium Alloy sabot. It is designed primarily as a “man-stopper” type defensive round that will drop most targets in a single shot and shred any flesh it contacts into red slurry.

  • Energy Source: Chemical
  • Price (100 round box): 100ks/200rn/refer to here for currency exchange

Exothermic Scatter-Shot

An orange shotgun shell filled with high-velocity powder that fires a mix of 00 steel pellets and magnesium filings which are designed to perforate targets with multiple, smaller wounds as well as spew a 3000 degrees Celsius1) gout of flame along the path of the pellets.
