Shotgun shells have come a long way over the years. When they were first made the shells were made of brass and resembled rifle rounds, and when they did change they started making the hulls with paper. Wads were made with materials like felt and cork, and although progress was made, it took time. It wasn’t until the 1960s that hulls were finally made with plastic, and of course there have been some significant changes since then, too. Today shotgun shells look nothing like the originals from more than one hundred years ago, and it’s a good thing, because today’s shotgun shells are capable of far more stopping power.
These shotgun rounds are made for your 12 gauge, and with a 1 1/8 ounce load you can be confident they’re more than powerful enough to propel the projectiles within towards the target with destructive force. At 1 1/8 ounce they have less felt recoil than the larger 1 ¼ ounce loads and still produce substantial energy. Each of these rounds is 2 ¾” long and filled with #9 lead shot. These shotgun shells burst from the barrel of your shotgun at the fantastic muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and impact targets with compelling force. This ammunition is specifically meant for shattering clays.
When you place your order for this box of ammunition from Federal, you get 250 rounds. With that many shotgun shells you’re going to be well stocked for awhile – or at least until the first long weekend you get range time. Although these rounds are designed for shattering clays on the skeet course they can be used for target practice and destroying plastic jugs, too. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, according to exacting specifications. Place your order today to keep your 12 gauge shotgun well fed.
