ANOKA, Minnesota - January 26, 2023 - On Target magazine recently recognized Force X2 Shorty Shotshell with an Editors’ Choice Award for best new shotshell ammunition for 2022, as part of the magazine’s annual awards program.

“These awards are reserved for the best-of-the-best new products which demonstrate outstanding technical achievement and/or represent an extraordinary value for the money,” said On Target Magazine Editor Ben Battles. “The concept behind Force X2 is straightforward: In a 6-pellet 00 FX2 Buck load you get 12 wound channels. And with the short size, you get more magazine capacity. It’s as simple as that. And it’s certainly deserving of this recognition.”

Federal Ammunition added the Force X2 Shorty Shotshell to the line of Premium Personal Defense Shotshells in the summer of 2022. The Force X2 Shorty is designed for use in firearms capable of cycling sub-length shotshells. This new 12-gauge 1 ¾-inch shotshell allows for higher magazine capacity with up to twice the wound channels over traditional buckshot pellets.

Force X2 Shorty packs a punch with six-pellet 00 copper plated segmenting buckshot. Each pellet is designed to split in half on impact. This allows the loads to have double the wound channels while reducing the risk of collateral damage from over penetration. Force X2 Shorty carries the same quality and performance expected by users of the standard-sized Force X2 shotshells (2 3/4-inch loads). The Force X2 Shorty design and cartridge size also delivers the benefit of manageable recoil for when repeatability is needed.
