This shell is loaded with 1-1/8 ounces of 00 buckshot and achieves 1,214 fps muzzle velocity. The shell’s combined muzzle energy is 1,611 ft lbs, which means each of the nine 0.33” diameter shot pellets has a muzzle energy of approximately 179 ft lbs. Sellier & Bellot’s hard lead prevents deformation during ignition that could harm pattern density, as well as deformation on impact that could shorten penetration depth.
This shell is loaded with a felt wad instead of a high-tech plastic one, but it still gets the job done well enough. We can’t say for certain whether this ammo will cycle your semi-automatic, but its dram equivalent of 3 is right in the slot as far as certain self-loaders are concerned. Clear plastic hulls make this ammo easy to identify, and its brass heads are 0.49” in length.
