ANOKA, Minn. – January 26, 2023 – In the White The magazine recently recognized the Force X2 Shorty Shotshell with an Editors’ Choice Award for Best New Cartridge Ammunition for 2022, as part of the magazine’s annual awards program.
“These awards are reserved for the best new products that demonstrate outstanding technical achievement and/or represent extraordinary value for money,” said On Target magazine editor Ben Battles. “The concept behind Force X2 is simple: in a 6 pellet Buck 00 FX2 load you get 12 wound channels. And with the short size, you get more magazine capacity. It’s as simple as that. And he is certainly deserving of this recognition.”
Federal Ammunition added the Force X2 Shorty Shotshell cartridge to the line of premium personal defense cartridges in the summer of 2022. The Force X2 Shorty is designed for use in firearms capable of firing sub-length cartridges. This new 1 ¾-inch 12-gauge shotshell allows for greater magazine capacity with up to twice the number of wound channels than traditional shot.
Force X2 Shorty packs a big punch with six pellet 00 copper plated segmentation pellets. Each pellet is designed to split in half on impact. This allows charges to have twice as many channels rolled while reducing the risk of collateral damage from excessive penetration. Force X2 Shorty has the same quality and performance users have come to expect from standard size Force X2 cartridges (2 3/4-inch loads). The Force X2 Shorty design and cartridge size also provide the benefit of manageable recoil for when repeatability is needed.
