For those who choose steel shot out of their 410 shotguns, this is a compelling load for a multitude of purposes. The #6 shot in a 3/8 ounce shot weight in a 3-inch shell makes this quite a potent load for waterfowl and upland birds that are normally quite tough with a .410. The need to compensate for the lack of lead means the enhanced velocity and the bigger shot size/shot weight will easily cover the shortfalls of the material used (steel). This ensures better kill rates and less wounded birds.
This is also a decent mid-range home defense cartridge if you prefer the .410 shotshell but more than anything, this is a fantastic load for game and target use because the steel shot has been more than compensated for; the load is pretty heavy and the build quality of the shell is immaculate. The Federal Badge is carried with honor in millions of guns and range bags daily. In the case of these .410 shotshells, Federal has done a great job of adhering to hunting regulation and keeping this round obtainable by all types of shooters with an excellent price point. This is suitable in all 3” .410 gauge shotguns.
