Sterling is a brand of Turaç, an ammo manufacturer based in Çankırı, Turkey. Don’t worry – we don’t know how to pronounce all those strange letters either. Good thing is all you need to know about this 12 Gauge ammo is that it’s poised to put some serious power wherever you decide it’s most needed.
This shell is loaded with nine pellets of 00 buckshot. It delivers these 1/3” diameter lead balls out of the muzzle at nearly 1,300 fps, giving each enough momentum to deal crippling energy to deer as well as more threatening targets. Whether you’d employ this ammo for hunting or defending the old homestead, you shouldn’t find its stopping power or penetration wanting for a thing.
Turaç gives each of their shotshells a hard brass-plated head for resilience against so much chamber pressure, a clear hull for easy identification, and a crystal upper wad that is designed to improve pattern density.
