Ths 12 Gauge round is loaded with a mere 24 grams of #8 lead shot. (That’s 7/8 ounces in American-speak.) The laws of physics dictate that so light a shot column shouldn’t subject the shooter to very much recoil, and Sterling’s own soft wad design further lessens the amount of recoil you’ll feel. Less recoil means less fatigue – and that means more shooting!
This shell doesn’t compromise in terms of muzzle velocity, though. At 1,300 fps this shell turns its 350 or so shot pellets into a real burst of energy, making it easier to line up clean shots on fast-moving clays. Sterling also casts this shell’s lead with extra antimony for added hardness, so you don’t have to worry about weak patterns from flat spotting or flyaways.
Sterling’s a modern ammo manufacturer: no corrosive primers, and powder that’s formulated to combat rapid residue buildup. Reloadable hulls tie everything together nicely!
