Federal ammunition has a well-deserved excellent reputation, one they’ve been building for almost 100 years. The company was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn who got the company started selling their products in grocery stores; before long their ammunition was being sold all over the country. Experienced shooters recognize the quality of Federal ammunition. In fact, it’s been used in enormous quantities by members of our military and has also been used by Olympic shooters to win gold medals. Federal may have started small, but they’ve grown into something substantial, and shooters everywhere hope they’ll continue for years to come.
Target shooting covers a wide range of styles, but when you’re referring to clay pigeon shooting it applies to skeet, trap, and clays. There are dozens of disciplines within those three categories, but they all have one thing in common: the goal is to shatter clays. Those clays were made to replace live birds – glass balls were tried at one point, too – and are inverted saucers whose size depends on the country where you’re shooting. They’re made of a combination of pitch and pulverized limestone and are actually a fairly ingenious design because they have to be strong enough to survive being launched from traps while still capable of being shattered by buckshot. In order to shatter clays reliably, you need good ammo like these rounds from Federal.
These are 12 gauge rounds with 1 1/8 ounce loads filled with #8 shot. Using a 1 1/8 ounce load provides more than enough power for shattering clays while reducing felt recoil a bit from a larger 1 ¼ ounce load. Each of these shells is 2 ¾” in length and has a muzzle velocity of 1145 feet per second. These are Federal Top Gun Target Loads designed specifically for breaking clays, and when you order this 25-round box you get pink rounds, because this ammunition benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. Federal manufactures these pink 12 gauge rounds at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Order yours today and show your support for breast cancer research.
