Federal Game-Shok #8 Shot 2-3/4" 1-1/8 oz. 12 Gauge Ammo - 25 Rounds
12 gauge shotgun use for bird hunting has a well-established tradition that goes back over two centuries or more. It was a pass time initially reserved for country gentlemen of the aristocracy but has today become a sport available to all, either in the field or at the skeet range. There is a myriad of shells available, many purpose specific, but small lead shot is well suited for hunting or clay shooting outside of wetlands.
This 12 gauge, 2.75” shell by Federal Ammunition contains 1-1/8 ounces, meaning approximately 460 lead pellets that are .09” in diameter (#8 shot) that leave the muzzle at around 1250 feet per second. This is suitable for birding, clays and even home defense: at close range birdshot is still condensed and quite devastating, all with a reduced recoil than more traditional defense loads. Virtually every modern shotgun is capable of firing the 2.75” shells.
Federal Ammunition is one of the most prolific makers of shot shells for American markets. This high volume of sales is attributed to its fervent devotion to quality production. Loaded in shells that are reloadable with boxer primers to those who have the appropriate presses.
