This shotshell is loaded with 1-1/8 ounces of shot and to a 1,250 fps muzzle velocity. Those are both common specs for a 12ga target shell, so you’ll experience completely average recoil. Fiocchi’s cushioned wad collapses on ignition to take even more sting out of recoil.
This shell’s #8 shot pellets deliver that dense, effective spread you want while you’re intercepting a moving target. The shot is made of chilled lead, which is harder than usual and accordingly less susceptible to deformation. Consistently spherical shot pellets do a better job maintaining a dense pattern.
This shell’s semi-transparent reloadable hull also houses a non-corrosive primer and clean-burning powder. And if Fiocchi sells shotshells in the USA, those shells must have been loaded in Ozark, MO.
