Details

Federal's Law Enfocement line of 12 ga 00 buckshot features their signature FLITECONTROL® wad which results in a much tighter pattern of buckshot than conventional wads. The pellets actually remain together until roughly 10 feet after they exit the barrel when the rear side of the wad starts to come apart. This results in a great hunting and/or self-defense load.

Video Transcript:

Federal started making ammunition in 1922, and they have since become one of the premier ammo manufacturers. They're owned by ATK, which also owns companies like Speer and CCI. ATK also makes a lot of the ammunition used by the US military. That's a pretty strong record for quality.

While quality is nice to have when you're buying ammunition for a day at the range, quality is very nice to have when you're buying ammunition to use for home defense. The top of the line for Federal ammunition is called Federal Premium, and it consists of ammunition that is ideal for target shooting, hunting, or self defense.

A great example of how good Federal Premium ammo can be is their 12 gauge tactical double aught buck load. It contains eight copper plated lead double aught buck pellets, which are each about a third of an inch in diameter.

Out of 20-inch barreled shotgun, these eight pellets are moving at a velocity of about 1,150 feet per second. This is roughly equivalent to firing eight small handgun bullets at one time. In addition, this load features the flitecontrol wad, which keeps the shot much tighter in distance. This is definitely a good thing because any pellet you fire that doesn't hit your intended target might end up hitting something you don't want to shoot.

At 7 yards, which is a fairly typical self defense distance, especially inside a home, all of the pellets went into one ragged hole. Even out of 15 yards, all of the pellets were hitting so close that I couldn't identify the individual hits. I set the steel plate out at 35, and found that all eight pellets were still on the target.

I tested this ammo in four different shotguns, a Mossberg 500 and a Remington 870, which are both pump actions, a Saiga-12, which is a semi-auto, and a Stoeger coach gun, which is a side-by-side double-barreled shotgun. It was reliable in all of them, which I expected.

Although Federal doesn't specifically call this a low recoil load, it was also very soft shooting, which helped with rapid follow up shots. Federal Premium ammo isn't cheap, but it delivers some of the best performance available at any price. I would not hesitate to recommend this ammo for home defense use.

Roughly 3 inch hole at 15 yards with all 8 pellets from Remington Tactical 870 with an 18 1/2 inch barrel. If you want better than that, buy a slug! (Posted on 11/8/13)

Highly recommend this round. At 15 yards I can cover the group with one hand out of 20in barrel cylinder bore. Lucky gunner has great customer service and I look forward to doing business with them in the future. (Posted on 10/20/13)

This may be the best home defense load for shot guns, due to the FLITECONTROL® wad and eight 00 pellets. Review by Ed

The FLITECONTROL® wad controls the shot pattern extremely well.
The eight (vs. nine) pellets seem to make this round very easy to shoot well.
The reduced perceived recoil is an advantage for me, my wife, and our girls.
I have just ordered my next 250 rounds. I hope you can hold the price!

High quality, no shipping damages, and it shoots great. The flight control wadding does infact keep a tighter shot pattern even with my 18.5" barrel! (Posted on 8/6/13)

This round is effectively a slug at under 10 yds. At 18 yds, pattern grows to 10 inches. Still within torso target at 25 yds. No feed or eject issues with Mossberg 500. This is now my 00 round of choice for home defense. As always LG service is 100%. (Posted on 9/14/12)

These 8 pellet shotshells are excellent in both my pump-shotguns at ranges near to 50 yards. I need the full load 9 pellet for my semi and have not tried these in the semi. The service and communication from LuckyGunner.com was 100%. Delivery was very fast. It is a good feeling being able to deal with such a reliable company.

Ran this through my Benelli and had no hiccups. The range I shoot at only goes to 25 yards and the flight control buck was hitting the target at that distance. Very impressed with the flight control compared to the other stuff.

As always, LG's customer service is the best. Had this in no time. (Posted on 4/23/12)

I bought a couple cases of these for my pump shotguns. The 'Tactical' wads kept the groups quite tight and are very effective out to (about) 50 yards. Impressive for the 8 pellet round.
However, the 9 pellet version cycles much better in my semi-auto 12 gauges. Service is 100% with LuckyGunner. (Posted on 4/9/12)

I have patterned this ammo with a FN SPL witha IC choke. 7or8 pellets can be expected on a sil. target at 40 yards. that is about twice a regular oo buck load. (Posted on 2/27/12)
