Federal Ammunition has released its new lineup of Shorty shotshells, which they claim will “deliver similar full-sized performance without the length of standard shells.” Watch the video above with Federal Shorty shotshells at the 2019 SHOT Show.

Although they are just 1¾ inches in length, the new 12-gauge Shorty shotshells should provide similar patterns, energy and accuracy as their full-size counterparts.

The company has three SKUs in the Shorty line available for launch:

  • SH129 4B, 12-gauge 4 buck; 1,200 fps, 10-count. $11.95
  • SH129 RS, 12-gauge rifled slug; 1,200 fps, 10-count. $11.95
  • SH129 8, 12-gauge No. 8 shot; 1,145 fps, 10-count. $5.95


Something everyone should know before running out and buying a bunch of these is that not all shotguns can run these shells effectively at the moment. So, be sure to do your homework on what will work or not. There are some shotgun manufacturers that make pump-action guns and semi-automatics that are specifically designed to run compact shotshells. Additionally, there are some aftermarket options.

Federal Shorty shotshells have been delivered to dealers and should be available now. For more information, visit www.FederalPremium.com.
