Federal Game-Shok #7-1/2 Shot 1-1/8 oz. 12 Gauge 2-3/4" Ammo - 25 Rounds
For sporting purposes, the 12 gauge shotgun is perhaps the most famous caliber in the world. This is because of its simplicity and effectiveness as well as it being the most common, by construction and legal permission, firearm in the world. For bird hunting, shot shells have the ability to put out a large volume of projectiles while travelling for a limited, short range travel of any misses. This makes the shotguns an optimum choice where backstops are non-existent.
Federal’s 2.75”, 1-1/8 oz shell puts out up to 390 small, #7.5 shot (.095”) lead pellets at approximately 1255 feet per second. This is a common “upland” or “dry foul” hunting shell because of its effectiveness and easy handling.
Though the Minnesota based ammunition maker Federal is well known for its rifle and pistol calibers, being used as a base line for new model performance, the company is perhaps the most prolific of shotgun shell manufacturers. This quantity is maintained by a market eager for the quality and surety of function Federal shells provide for practice at the range and in the field to bring in game. Federal uses boxer primers in their shells for reloading by shooters who have access to reloading presses.
