Federal #1 Buckshot with Flitecontrol for sale?

Any knowledge of where to buy Federal #1 Buckshot with Flitecontrol? The one that's marketed as "Law Enforcement" and is generally hard to track down.

I've looked all over and searched the forum. People seem to say that its non-existent , and then you see a guy testing it or raving about it. They've got to be buying it from somewhere!

Anyone know anything? I've checked all the usual suspects and done some google-fu. The 00 is easy to find, and relatively affordable. I wanted to test the #1.

132 1B is indeed in production. Unfortunately, demand is very high and most distribution is being designated for LEOs, and that will be the case until supply catches up with demand. The same scenario was true when LE 132 00 was first introduced. Ammoman.com had stock about about 5-6 weeks ago and I purchased a case, but he sold out really fast.

I can tell you that LE 132 1B is the best HD load that I have ever used and that it patterns as well as LE132 00.

The Box O'Truth recently reviewed LE132 1B:

Others have also posted results of their pattern testing; here's one thread:

Yea I heard ammoman.com has some once in a while...guess it will be something to look forward to.

Just bought some 00. impulse buy. I'll switch to the #1 when it becomes available.

Thanks for the info. I saw a pattern out of a 18 inch barrel at 50 yards and i was like I have to try that!
