The lead pellets are hardened for integrity, facilitating a rounder shot shape which contributes to more compact patterns and deeper reach into a target. The pellets sit atop a polymer wad that is crushed when the shell is fired in order to mitigate recoil. Beneath the wad is a measure of clean-burning powder that is well-suited to the load for a balance between muzzle velocity and controllable recoil impulse. Those components are contained within a brass head and a plastic hull which work to prevent moisture from ruining dependable ignition. Ignition itself is provided by a mercury-free 209 primer at the base of the head.
