Each shell contains a 1 oz. projectile which fires at muzzle velocity of 1,300 feet per second (fps) while carrying 1,644 foot-pounds of deer-dropping energy. 1,300 fps is a below-average velocity for a 12 gauge slug but requires less powder and produces less recoil than a high-velocity one; this results in a shorter recovery time between shots. If a defender is facing multiple assailants or misses (a very real possibility in a tense live-fire situation), this higher rate of fire can be a major advantage. In addition, lower-velocity slugs are somewhat less likely to over-penetrate barriers or targets and cause collateral damage to people or property.
Each case of 250 shells comes packaged as 50 boxes of 5 shells each. This ammo is loaded at Federal's headquarters in Anoka, Minnesota.
