This is the stuff
I teach in a LE academy. Our students shoot regular buckshot loads (lowest price bid) throughout the course until qualification. We then introduce them to Federal Flight Control in their final practice phase before and during qualification. As long as the students due their part, they have no problem keeping all the shot in the scoring area. The tight pattern of FFC allows an increased student success rate.
Oh BTW, students must score 100 percent to qualify.
Ran these rounds in a Bennelli M2 Tactical. When I opened the box, each round seemed very light compared to other 00 buck I've shot. Unfortunately, I had constant FTE's. I then loaded up a different brand of 00 buck, bird shot, and slugs, no problems. I still have hope for this round! I'm cleaning the shotgun and trying again next weekend, again hopefully it's the gun and not the round...
Federal 00 Buck Flight Control with a Cylinder Choke is a heavyweight combination for your Benelli m4
I run the Benelli M4. If you replace the Modified choke with a Cylinder choke and run Federal 00 Buck Flight Control you will achieve tighter patterns out to 25 yards decreasing the likelihood of collateral damage. This combination will serve you well.
If you're looking for a "spreader load", this is not your buckshot!
If you're looking for a "spreader load", this is not your buckshot! However, if you're looking for a buckshot load to increase the range, power, and overall effectiveness is your tactical shotgun, this is you buckshot load! Recoil is very manageable, and patterns look more like groups than patterns, insanely tight! I have the eight pellet & the nine pellet, no practical difference; Federal Tactical LE is the only buckshot load I need! As usual, LuckyGunner's Team also gets a five-star rating!
Incredibly tight patterns and reliable functioning
Used a case in a 2-day tactical match with my son. We both used modified Saigas. The Federal FliteControl Buckshot worked exceptionally well - cycled flawlessly through assorted stick and drum magazines. Patterning was incredibly tight - which is what I was looking for. The primary reason I purchased this ammo was for this match as there are often small heavy steel targets at 40+ yards that must fall to score. The tight patterns required a bit more accuracy on our part, but all targets were authoritatively knocked down (in previous years, I was forced to leave some targets standing in frustration after engaging them with 10+ rounds of buck from another manufacturer as I could not get sufficiently tight patterns at the longer range targets).
Note that this buckshot seems to prefer more open chokes - patterns opened up as I used tighter chokes (internal Rem Chokes on one Saiga, Polychoke on the other). So I imagine this would be just the ticket for those with fixed cylinder bore barrels. When patterning with the more open chokes, all 9 pellets would stay within 2-3" at 15 yards, and I could observe a tight pattern (maybe 12" or so) at 60 yards when they impacted the berm behind the patterning target.
tighter pattern, slighly more recoil than Remington Reduced Recoil tactical
The pattern of the Federal was noticeably and significantly tighter that the Remington Law Enforcement Reduced Recoil (PR12BK8-00) from 7 - 15 yards. There was a noticeable (but not significant) increase in recoil with the Federal as compared to the Remington. I used a Scattergun Technologies Border Patrol shotgun for my tests.
Overall the tighter pattern outweighs to slight increase in recoil.
I plan to buy more
Federal is Superb Ammo!
Using this ammo in a Benelli M2 Tactical. Cycles well. I was using Hornady Tactical 00 buck low recoil which would not cycle. Then I tried Hornady Critical Defense 00 Buck. The recoil and muzzle rise were horrible! So I switched to Federal. It works every time and destroys targets! Recoil and muzzle rise are much more manageable for follow up shots. Flight control wad keeps the pattern nice and tight. Costs a little more but worth it!
used this stuff for a 4 day tactical shotgun class and it is awesome.
Warning you can miss with this ammo, it is so tight you better be on your target it good stuff
almost like shooting a slug at 8 yards, and only about a hand sized spread at 20
