Exotic shotgun shell enthusiasts Taofledermaus put the classic Macho Gaucho “bolo” round which is two fairly heavy balls connected by a thin steel cable, to the test.

After deconstructing one of the pricey shells and giving it the once-over including specs in both SAE and metric, they go to the range and see if they handle aa advertised via high-speed footage. And yes, there is destructive testing on both a giant gummy bear and a Chinese drone.

On the plus side, they are accurate– Tao was hitting targets out to 35 yards with no issue. On the minus side, well, just watch the video.
