Editors’ Picks 2019: Federal Shorty Shotshell

Federal Premium Ammunition is launching a new series of 1 3/4"-long Shorty 12-ga. shotgun shells for sporting, hunting and defensive applications. Modern 2 3/4" and 3" shells contain plastic wads that take up much of the empty space that used to be filled by the bulkier black powders. Trimming down a 12-ga. shell to 1 3/4" eliminates that empty space while preserving the payloads at nearly the same performance found in longer shells. As a result, more rounds can fit into a shotgun’s tubular magazine as well as the pockets and pouches of enthusiasts in the field. Federal’s Shorty shells will be sold in 10-round boxes. The first three offerings include a 15/16-oz. No. 8 lead bird shot load with a listed velocity of 1145 f.p.s. for $5.95 and both a 15-pellet, No. 4 buckshot load and a foster-style, 1-oz. rifled slug load at 1200 f.p.s. with a suggested retail price of $11.95. federalpremium.com
