Federal has introduced a new 2.75" 20 gauge turkey load. It uses the Flitecontrol Wad with 1.125 oz of #7 Heavyweight shot (250 pellets) at 1100 f.p.s. with the same downrange energy as a 1.5 oz. load of #5 lead shot and a 40% reduction in recoil over their 3" 20 gauge (their figures).
That may be a very interesting shell. Only time will tell.
