Whether for range use, personal defense or hunting, Federal’s new Shorty shotshells pack a similar punch to their bigger brothers in a small, 1¾-inch shell. Loaded with No. 8 shot, No. 4 buckshot or a rifled slug, there’s a reduced-recoil Shorty for you.
The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute has released new cartridge and chamber designs for Federal’s new 12-gauge, 1¾-inch Shorty shotshell.
Federal has combined the power of two of its newest technologies to create a shotshell option that changes the nature of self-defense. The new Force X2 Shorty shells measure just 1¾ inches but hold a payload of six 00 segmenting buckshot engineered to split into two equal pieces on impact.
