Rated 2 out of 5 by CptImpossible Quality Control Much?
Was really looking forward to testing this through a Taurus Public Defender Poly after seeing the reviews. Sadly, 4 out of the 20 rounds were too wide to fit into the cylinder without a varying amount of additional pressure which would lodge them into the cylinder.
No problems with 45 colt or PDX1 410 rounds, only the 4 rounds from this box. Tried to contract Federal about the problem but a week later, and they still can't be bothered to respond. Really disappointing as a long time fan of the Federal Premium lineup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pfletch83 A highly effective round for many uses
I very rarely give a product a full 5 star rating but the Federal .410 buckshot loads have more than earned it.
The 3 inch and 2-1/2 inch '000' buck loads function and pattern very well in my Mossberg 500 E series shotguns (both wear factory 18.5 inch cylinder choke barrels)
They are my go to round for medium range defense outside of the home, Federal 3-inch #4 Buck (which I see is absent from Bass pro's selection, though I think it has to do with product availability) is my go to close range (home defense) shotgun load.
The 2-1/2 inch '000' buck is a very good buy for those that own a Smith&Wesson Governor or Taurus Judge revolver, grouping very well at close range and carrying a heavy punch.
I will recommend these shells to anyone that has or is thinking about using a .410 shotgun or handgun for defense.
These loads (2-1/2 inch '000'buck,3-inch '000' buck,and 3-inch #4 buck) hit hard while still featuring low recoil *from a shotgun at least* and are a great value.
*'000' loads are best used with fixed cylinder choke barrels or fixed modified choke barrels from shotguns*

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shucks Best Ammo for Governor
I have S&W Governor pistol and have tried all the various 410 ammo available. These hit hard and due to a special wad group tight. This is my #1 choice for defensive ammo. Highly recommend.
