    Only managed to shoot this stuff out to 15 yards, but here it is - the Federal Tactical #1 Buckshot ammo with the FliteControl wad that everyone seems to want:

    S'good stuff; low recoil, patterns well.

    That was shot through a Remington 870 clone (Hawk 982 by Norinco) - cylinder-bore choke.

    If you can post pics at 25 yards after you shoot again. Fed should have called that round, "turkey shoot special". I wonder what it do out a 26" barrel...hmmmm

    Andy, when ordering online, do you know how to ensure that the Federal buckshot you're getting has the FliteControl wad? Or does all Federal "Tactical/LEO" buckshot have it?

    Wow, good question - I don't know. A friend of mine gave me a few boxes - and of course I've already thrown them in the trash :(
