Federal’s line of Top Gun sporting ammunition has been a popular choice amongst sport shotgun shooters for years. Two new higher velocity offerings are now available at 1,300 fps in both 1-ounce, 12 -gauge 2 ¾-inch loads in either 7.5 or number 8 shot sizes.
Two New Higher Velocity Shotshell Offerings from Federal
The velocity has been upped nearly 100 fps from the old 1210 fps and even slower 1145 fps Top Gun sporting loads. This higher velocity will give clay shooters a nice drop in the amount of lead they need to hit a clay pigeon. This loading also should reduce felt recoil and allow the shooter to make faster follow-up shots when multiple targets are deployed.

Learning to properly lead a moving target can end up being a difficult task for many shooters. This ammunition seems like it might be suited for newer or beginner shooters who are just being introduced to clay pigeon shooting. While higher birdshot loads are out there such as Federals Black Cloud loadings can reach speeds at upwards of 1600 fps, this is not optimal for uninitiated shooters looking to do some recreational shooting.
Top Gun ammunition has been a favorite line of Shotgun ammunition for me because of two reasons. The first is that it’s extremely cost-effective. Second is that they use incredibly reliable non-corrosive primers along with very clean-burning powders. Both of which do reduce the time spent cleaning after shooting.
Your local dealers are likely just now receiving these new higher velocity loads so be sure to check out your local stores for this ammunition. For more information on Top Gun sporting loads, you can visit the Federal Ammunition website.
