I recently took a doe at over 100 yds with the SST slugs through a new shotgun. It was the first non-target shot from the Beretta 390 Cantilever slug barrel. One off-hand shot from a tree stand hit her front shoulder and she went down in 15 yards, never to get back up. On field dressing I recovered the slug which had hit the front shoulder, both lungs and lodged in the hide of the opposing shoulder. A photo of the slug is attached with nearly 100% retention after a rough ride. I'll never use anything else. I'd be willing to send in the slug to the Hornady Team if they're interested.
