But why is this shell so effective for dropping large upland game? Because it’s a powerhouse. The 3” long banana-yellow behemoth packs a 1-1/4 ounce column of #5 shot, and it flings those 200+ lead beads to a brisk muzzle velocity of 1,300 fps. It’s a tight-patterning shell as well, which reliably sinks most of its pellets into a feathered fiend thanks to Federal’s impressively hard lead and highly effective one-piece plastic wad. Impressively low recoil considering all of that power, too!
Federal is one of the biggest names in the shotshell manufacturing world. They’re the ones who came up with the idea of color-coding shells in the first place! This ammo’s uniform primers and powder charges deliver predictable ballistic performance, and its brass-plated steel-headed hulls are reloadable.
