A very nice load for the personal defense handgun owners desiring versatility in the .410 caliber. This #4 shot 2.5” 7/16 ounce load is a manageable, potent threat stopper. The recoil is tame for the .410 in a handgun and the lower velocity and lower powder charge keeps the muzzle flash lower in self-defense scenarios. The difference in using an ammunition that is made for personal defense and one that isn’t, is immediately apparent when you start to see the creature comforts built into this load.
The quality build and the chosen components combine to make a solid round for any .410 shooter in any gun, but one that is very nice for the hand cannons that can accept it. The mild load with the great payload and a good spread for a moderate shot size means the simple easy to shoot round is a potent threat stopping load.
Federal Premium has been reliable across the board with its ammunition for many years, the factory production standards are often far beyond most competitor brands and the resulting ammunition is at the top end of the market. For a dedicated personal defense choice that allows a fast follow up shot and controllable recoil, this 950 fps velocity load is an option that should be considered.
