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.
