I know that I've seen these slugs advertised in several places, Shotgun News???? The are 12 ga slugs that open up sort of like a flower on impact. There is one that stays together and punches a fist size hole through the target and another that the "petals" of the flower break off and send six sharp fragments in all kinds of directions through the target while the body of the slug does its mash and grind thing. I just can't remember the name or the manufacturer of these shells. I sure would appreciate your help.

They don't work. Someone is always hawking a "super load" that does nothing except separate you from you money. Don't fall for it.
Get name brand ammunition.

Another one is Hexolite32. Try:

I generally have the same opinion as Bill DeShivs, but these actually just seem to be some of the tech we're seeing in certain handgun HP ammo (that Corbon Pwrball stuff for example) ported to shotguns.

Of course, whether or not that's needed given the tremendous effectiveness of current low tech slugs is debatable.
