This is a 3-1/2” long shotshell, so it has the capacity for a big shot column and a big muzzle velocity. 1-3/8 ounces of shot propelled to a Mach 1.3 muzzle velocity is going to deliver a mighty healthy kick to the old shoulder – not to mention a mighty blow to any duck which gets too close to you.
This shell’s 172 #2 shot pellets are two important things as far as waterfowl hunting is concerned. First, they are made of nontoxic steel. No need to attract any unwanted attention from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Second, that steel is zinc-plated. It’s going to help prevent the kind of corrosion which weakens pattern efficiency while you’re hunting around wetlands.
These shells’ wads don’t let hard steel shot come into contact with your shotgun’s bore, and their primers and powder charges are both Fiocchi’s standard clean-igniting work. This ammo hails from Missouri, aka the Show-Me State. But today Missouri wants to show you some duck loads!
