- Q & A
In 1922 Charles Horn visited a failing factory and decided to take over, so he re-founded it as the Federal Cartridge Company and started all over. He started small, selling the company’s ammunition in barber shops, gas stations, and grocery stores, and before long Federal began to flourish. The company was soon offered a government contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant, and they worked so hard producing ammunition for our nation’s military they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Today that same excellence is what drives them to manufacture quality ammunition, and they’re known and respected for their reliable rounds.
These particular Federal rounds are made for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each round is 2 ¾” long, which is the most common length of shotshells. Always be sure you know what length shotshell your shotgun is made to use because using the wrong length could result in a catastrophic failure. These rounds are filled with #8 buckshot and contain a 7/8 ounce load. A 7/8 ounce load provides enough power to send the buckshot within hurtling towards targets with destructive force but is also a small enough load to reduce felt recoil. With less felt recoil, it’s easier to make accurate shots, which is why 7/8 ounce loads such as these are often used for training and practice. This ammunition is made for shooting clays and is also great for target practice.
When you order this box of ammunition from Federal you get 10 boxes of 25 rounds each for a grand total of 250 rounds. That’s enough ammunition to keep your shotgun well-fed for some time, whether you’re shattering clays or destroying stationary targets. There’s no such thing as too much target practice or too much ammunition, so why not order two boxes while you’re at it? Your shotgun will thank you. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Order now, and get out on the trap course and shatter some clays.
