This 12 Gauge shell’s shot column is on the lighter side at one ounce. That and its not-too-hot 1,170 fps muzzle velocity are the reasons for its somewhat lighter recoil. But this shell is still well-equipped to shatter clay discs. Its #9 shot is made of chilled lead, which is dropped into the cooling bath immediately after the pellet is formed to promote superior hardness. Chilled lead doesn’t deform very easily during ignition, so this shell’s shot pellets remain round enough to maintain a tight pattern over long distances. That’ll be helpful when you let a clay get a little farther away than you would have liked!
Fiocchi’s target wads also help to cut down on felt recoil by collapsing under pressure, and their consistent primers and fast-burning powder charges serve up real reliable ballistics. This ammo was made in America, and you can make your own ammo in America if you decide to repurpose these shells’ reloadable hulls.
