ATK's new Federal Premium #1 buckshot arrived at SHOT Show in Las Vegas as a hard-hitting shotgun round offering tighter patterns for law enforcement officers.

The shells, which have the company's FliteControl wad, give 12-gauge operators 15 pellets compared to 00 buck's eight pellets. The 2 3/4-inch shell carries a muzzle velocity of 1,145 feet per second, according to ATK.

In testing, the buck shot's pattern spread was 0.71 inches at 7 yards, 1.56 inches at 15 yards, and 4.63 inches at 25 yards.

Lots of years in the making. This will likely be the very best LE buckshot load ever built.

I am looking at Remington Nitro Mag, 12ga. , #1 shot, 3 in......1400 FPS . I have asked remington for some balistics comps and a recoil when used in the Rem 870 Tactical Express ( 18 in brl )

What do you have to offer for analysis...professional use first shot load.

Sure. It must be true. Federal has been getting ready to release this for YEARS. I'll believe it when I see it.

Bullcrap. This stuff is not around for sale and it never will be. Federal has been talking about making it for a loooonnnnnggggggg time.

They just never get around to doing it.
