If this shell had been loaded with 3/4 ounces of #6 lead shot, it would contain 169 pellets total. But because steel isn’t as dense as lead, this shell stores a whopping 236 individual pellets instead. That alongside steel’s superior rigidity promotes an especially narrow pattern.
Lower-density steel shot pellets do have less striking energy than lead ones when they’re both traveling at the same velocity. That’s why Federal loads this shell to a staggeringly fast muzzle velocity of 1,500 fps. And because a 3/4 ounce shot column is relatively light for the 20ga, this shell won’t generate excessive chamber pressure. It’s a well thought out system, complete with Federal’s high-quality primers, power and reloadable hulls to ensure consistent functionality out in the field!
