This is a 12 Gauge Hevi-Shot Hevi-Duty 2 3/4" 30 Pellet #4 Buckshot load. Hevi-Shot is well known among hunters as a producer of dependable and efficient turkey and waterfowl loads. However, Hevi-Shot is introducing a new line of home defense shells known as the Hevi-Duty line. Hevi-Shot took into consideration several major items that are always looked for in a defensive shotshell load: recoil level, penetration, and terminal pellet performance. This load balances all three items quite well: the low recoil level allows even inexperienced shooters to handle the recoil in a situation where a missed shot could be fatal, and the specially designed non-toxic, frangible pellets give good penetration and massive energy transfer. Muzzle Velocity: 1250fps.
