    Howdy all! As the developers of the Universal Cartridge Adapter, we were pretty excited to come across these new Personal Defense Minishells from Federal. Much like a frangible round, the 6X 00 Buck pellets split into two pieces on impact, creating another wound channel. Though we have not had a chance to try them, we think this says a lot about the future of minishells!

    Now are these a gimmick? We cannot say for sure until we've done some more testing, but a high-end manufacturer like Federal putting in time and money for minishell R&D certainly grabs our attention. There are some early test results online, but we plan to do some testing on our own. What do y'all think about these?

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Those would be fantastic in my double-barreled hammer coach gun!!! I hope that they will one day be on the local store shelves.

    I am really curious about the wads.

    I can mod my press to make these from used hulls. Just for fun of course. I would use them in the 500 pump .

    No sense to me using shorties in the 2 barrel coach or the single shot shotty though.
