For birding, the 12 gauge remains just as popular today as it has been since the science of shotguns has been pioneered. Recent gaming legislation has required the substitution of lead shot for the purpose of hunting water fowl for environmental concerns. Steel shot does, however, have different flight characteristics than lead. This is partially because it is lighter, requiring more shot to achieve the same loading weight, but it also has a higher velocity and penetrates deeper, without being diverted by layers of feathers. The 3” 1.25 ounces loaded shell fires up to 147 #3 sized shot (.14” diameter) pellets at up to 1450 feet per second. This is ideal for use one most any sized aquatic avian game in season. Care should be taken to ensure the chamber of any firearm intended for use with these shells can accept the 3” shells.

Founded in the 1920s of Minnesota, Federal ammunition has provided premium sporting and performance ammunition to hunters all over the US and beyond. Their use of boxer primers also makes their shells suitable for reloading. Among the first companies to explore steel shot for use to protect America’s wetlands, Federal ammunition remains the standard against which all others are measured.
