Each shell is loaded with nine pellets of 00 buckshot. People who are new to shooting often ask us what they want for home defense with a shotgun, and 00 buck invariably tops our list. Each 1/3” diameter pellet is made of hardened lead, at once resistant to deformation for better accuracy and deeper penetration. When loaded to a muzzle velocity of 1,250 fps that makes a nasty, nasty dent in a target. Place one shell worth of 00 buck into a threat’s sternum and they’ll wish they bang-bang-crashed their way into someone else’s quarters … but probably only briefly.
Fiocchi’s own carefully designed wad cups its shot close together as it exits the muzzle, putting more pellets on target even across living-room length distances. This shell even manages to mitigate recoil somewhat – great for accurate rapid fire, although that might make it incapable of cycling some semi-automatic shotguns correctly. Clean burning propellant and a sensitive primer unite for reliable ignition, and a precision molded shell helps avert feeding issues when your shotgun absolutely, positively has to work.
