Testing 12 gauge bolo slinger and 'Ripper' novelty ammo (VIDEOS)

With one curious loading filled with a ball and cable payload and the other with a combo of birdshot and thumbtacks, are they worth it?

Paul Harrell delves into the serious research on these rounds, taking on the cable-ball slinger combo in the above and the thumbtack load below to keep from overlapping the wackiness. When he starts talking about his meat target with its leather jacket skin, boneless chicken thigh thoracic muscle, pork ribs, and watermelon lung tissue, you know he is 100 percent playing for keeps with these tests. In the end, he stacks it up against more traditional buck and slug shells to see what is a better choice.
