I am a firm believer in letting every brand and an individual box of ammo speak for itself. I try not to get caught up in whether an ammo brand is Federal, Hornady, Winchester, Remington, or Norma. Every time I pattern my shotgun and use Federal ammo, my pattern is tighter and more controlled than the majority of shotshell I’ve ever used. People sometimes ask me which is the best ammo for improving your probability of success, and I normally tell them to go with Federal. The unfortunate thing is everyone knows how good Federal ammo is and it’s almost impossible to find. I will try to keep this short to ensure you have time to think about this purchase.
I have had the fortune of shooting the Federal Heavyweight TSS 3.5″ shell and my pattern was perfectly in my circle in the 3 shells I got to shoot. Before you start wondering why 3 shells, it’s the price of this ammo. You get 5 shells for $64.99 at Sportsman’s Guide right now. Why is this ammo so expensive? This shell carries more pellets per load than any other shell available right now. Federal uses tungsten pellets, instead of lead, which are 56% denser and handles heat better. They use their patented FLITECONTROL FLEX® technology inside this shell to provide the best and most consistent pattern with every shot.
