If you have a tactical shotgun or are just thinking about getting one, first we’ll wholeheartedly say to go for it. They’re fantastic self-defense weapons and are enjoyable firearms overall, but you are going to need to learn a few tricks in order to get the most out of them. One of the best ways to master your tactical shotgun is to head to a five-stand, skeet, trap, or clay range. No, you’re not going to be winning matches with a tactical shotgun, but you can learn a lot from some of the experienced competitors including mastering speed loading during what’s known as a flurry shoot (that’s when multiple clays are sent up at once).
These 12 gauge rounds are loaded with 1-ounce rifled slugs, and you know that means they’re capable of enormous power. Each round is 2 ¾” in length and flies towards your target with a muzzle velocity of 1300 feet per second. Slugs deliver stunning force on impact and can do impressive things like disable vehicles, blow the locks off a door, and create a new doorway through the drywall. These are from the Federal Premium Law Enforcement Tactical line and are great for target practice and honing your tactical skills.
There are 250 rounds in this box of ammunition from Federal. Just think of the drills you can master with 250 rounds. Not only can you practice the standard standing firing position, but you can also work on shooting from kneeling positions and even put some time in firing while lying on one side or the other. If that seems unusual just remember that you cannot predict what might happen during a firefight; you don’t know what position you’ll be forced to defend yourself from, so make sure you can handle them all. Federal has been in business since 1922 and manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Your shotgun is capable of enormous power; load it with these 1-ounce rifled slugs and see the results for yourself.
