This shell launches 15/16 ounces of 0.24” diameter lead balls at a velocity of 1,200 fps. That is a smaller amount of shot and a lower muzzle velocity than a full-size, full-power shell. Still, this is a round that can dump well over 1,200 ft lbs of energy into a close-range target – about four times the minimum recommended for self-defense – and its smaller buckshot pellets pose a lower risk of potentially dangerous over-penetration than standard 00 buck.
*This ammo will not cycle in semi-automatic shotguns. Some pump-action models require an extra part to feed 1-3/4” shells.
