Bolo shell

Bolo shell

A Bolo shell usually refers to a type of shotgun shell load. The round is made of two or more slugs molded onto steel wire. When fired, the slugs separate, pulling the wire taut creating a flying blade, which could potentially decapitate people and animals; or amputate limbs. Bolo shell rounds are banned in many locations (including two states of the United States of America [ [http://www.flsenate.gov/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=Ch0790/SEC31.HTM&Title=-%3E2006-%3ECh0790-%3ESection%2031 The 2007 Florida Statues] ] [ [http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/pubact92/acts/92-0423.html State of Illinois Public Acts, 92nd General Assembly] ] ) due to their potential lethality. The round is named in reference to bolas, which used two or more weighted balls on a rope to trap cattle or game.
