20 Gauge 2-3/4" Reduced Recoil #3 Buckshot 17 Pellets
« on: December 01, 2019, 06:38:04 pm »
Happened to run across this 20 gauge reduced recoil load under the Remington Ultimate Defense Buckshot Ammunition moniker.

Then nominal velocity rating for 17 #3B pellets is listed a 1140 fps - presumably from a long industry test barrel.  No further information, although I presume it is a buffered load, but that and the wad system used remain to be seen.  There was very little information on the Remington website, so I checked the Midway site and indeed found a bit more info.

If any here have additional information about or experience with this load please post.  Remington seems to have all but hidden this 20 gauge load!

    Interesting.  I wonder if they went for #3B to get a specific charge weight/velocity or because everything fits better in the hull and groups OK?   :hmm
