Special hunting cartridge. What reply?
And in fact, a very popular question that is found in many crosswords, but what is there, even on this site I already gave an answer in which I mentioned this type of patron, but apparently the question was asked there somewhat differently. And the answer is JACAN, a special heavy bullet used by big game hunters.
This is one of the favorite questions of crossword and scanword writers. The answer to it is - jacan.
Zhakan is a specially designed bullet for a hunting shotgun.
Previously, such bullets were made by hunters themselves from lead in artisanal conditions, because such bullets had a pronounced stopping effect when hunting a large game (especially a bear).
In real hunting conditions, the fire was fired from a close distance, namely from 50 - 60 meters, it was from this distance that its destructive power increased (although the firing range with a jacan could reach up to 200 meters).
People called such cartridges "zhekan" or "impeller".
