“Copper-plated No. 1 Buckshot really rounds off our Premium buckshot lineup,” said Federal Shotshell Product Director Dan Compton. “No. 1 Buck really lands in a sweet spot, overall. It delivers increased pellet counts compared to larger buckshot sizes. Yet also provides greater energy and penetration on target than smaller buckshot sizes.”

Summary of features include: 16-pellets of No. 1 Buck copper-plated lead shot; 12-gauge, 2 ¾-inch magnum load with 1,325 feet-per-second muzzle velocity; Use of buffer to prevent pellet deformation and ensure dense, uniform patterns; Premium-quality wad, hull, primer; Enhanced manufacturing quality tests and checks; 5-round boxes; MSRP: $15.99.
