The 3-1/2” shell makes good use of all that energy too. With its G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.099 it retains 1,600 ft lbs of energy up until 100 yards, which is still adequate for humane elk hunting. The rifled slug is designed to safely pass through a smoothbore shotgun’s choke, and with its soft lead body and centered hollow point it’s poised to expand tremendously within dense muscle tissue. As the slug fans out it disperses its available energy quickly, while simultaneously leaving a gaping wound channel in its wake.
Federal’s high brass head and solid plastic tube are both up to the task of containing so much power. Polished off with fast-burning propellant and a sensitive, non-corrosive primer, this ammo is a great choice for hunting a variety of North American game.
Please note that this is a 10 Gauge shell – it will not work in a 12 Gauge shotgun.
