In celebration of Federal Ammunition’s 100-year anniversary and rich history of shotshell manufacturing, the company is releasing four commemorative shotshell packages.
Southwick Associates’ 2021 “Hunting & Shooting Participation and Equipment Purchases Consumer Tracking Study” named Federal Ammunition the most frequently purchased rifle and shotgun ammunition brand in 2021.
Winchester Ammunition has introduced Blind Side 2 waterfowl shotshells. Similar to their predecessors, they utilize hex-shaped shot, but are differentiated by a nickel-plated head and Drylok wad system.
Winchester has debuted its Super Pheasant Diamond Grade shotshell ammunition, bringing eight-percent antimony, copper-plated shot to the upland fields in a five-shot configuration.
Federal has combined the power of two of its newest technologies to create a shotshell option that changes the nature of self-defense. The new Force X2 Shorty shells measure just 1¾ inches but hold a payload of six 00 segmenting buckshot engineered to split into two equal pieces on impact.
