    I'm sure several people here will have the opportunity to ask about it at SHOT.

    It is no longer listed on Federal's LE website. Only 00 Buck loads are shown.

    I'll be interested to see how it does in testing. I'm not instantly opposed to it.

    If we can get it with flight control level patterning and it reduces the possibility of over-penetration it's not a bad thing.

    The idea of the pellets splitting up once they're inside the target isn't as good as more projectiles hitting at the same place at roughly the same time, though. More individual wound tracks are nice in that there's more chances of hitting something CNS related...assuming it penetrates deeply enough to accomplish that.

    Hmm...Interesting.

    But I can't help but think that won't pattern worth a damn much past 10 yards. What I've found by comparing the Federal flight control and Hornady Critical Defense, which use the same exact wad, is the Federal trounces the Hornady. This is because Federal uses copper plated shot along with a shot buffer. Hornady just uses bare shot with no buffer. I'm pretty sure that shot deformation is a lot more in the Hornady load and that's what causes it's much larger groups. That belt looking thing on the shot can't be very aerodynamic, but it may be a hell of a good load up close.

    I didn't see #1 buckshot on the Federal site, just 000, 00, and 4.
    It's dangerous to challenge a system unless you're completely at peace with the thought that you're not going to miss it when it collapses.

    8 pellet 00 Flite-Control if you have a cylinder bore, 9 pellet has more flyers in all my shotguns.
