This shell is loaded with a full ounce of #3 buckshot. That is smaller buckshot by any measure, and though it tends not to penetrate soft tissue as deeply as double-aught it compensates with a far higher pattern density. You’re looking at about 18 pellets per ounce as opposed to the mere eight pellets which 00 buck offers. This shot is additionally copper-plated, which acts to prevent deformation that harms accuracy as well as results in shallower wound channels.
This shell’s pattern becomes even tighter thanks to Federal’s granulated buffering material. That cushions the shot against jarring energy during ignition, which helps it to remain even rounder. Federal’s wad is no less useful for the promotion of tighter patterns. All things together, you can absolutely expect to put this shell’s entire ounce of shot through a very tight ring at 10, 20 or even 30 yards.
