Federal 12ga 1 3/4" Shorty Buckshot

I bought these thinking they might make good defensive loads for indoor use. They would probably be great for someone living in an apartment. I was testing them in a double barrel SxS shotgun, but Mossberg/Maverick pump guns with the Tac Sol adapter will run them. I got the 15 pellet #4 Buck loading that is listed at 1200fps. Recoil is extremely mild, and all pellets hit a 12"x 18" target at 30 feet. A gallon water jug shot at the same distance blew up spectacularly when 9 pellets hit it. These little buckshot loads are fun to shoot!
