This shell is loaded with one ounce of #7.5 lead shot. The official rules of sporting clays would permit you another 1/8 ounce, but that lesser recoil is going to help your aim if you’re firing an over-under or side-by-side in rapid succession. Shot must stay round to fly straight, so Federal makes theirs extra hard to let it keep its shape during ignition.
A clean burning charge of propellant punches this shell’s shot out of the muzzle at 1,330 fps. With that kind of speed on your side you’ll have less trouble leading with your aim -- it could only be faster to smash the clays on the ground with a hammer.
