Federal Ammunition has introduced Federal Action Shotgun, catering to the wants and needs for competitors within the growing sport of action shotgun. This specialized load was created to deliver a perfect balance of power, shoot-ability, and control needed in multi-gun competitions.

“Every aspect of this new ammo has been designed to help competitors run their shotgun stages more efficiently and effectively,” said Scott Turner, Federal’s shotshell product line manager. “First and foremost, this product is designed to address and eliminate hand-loading and magazine-feeding issues these athletes often encounter. Second, it delivers the quantity and power that action shotgun shooters were already seeking out. And finally, it uses the ideal components for the ultimate in pattern performance and reliability competitors can depend on.”

Action Shotgun features an overshot card and roll crimp that adds strength and rigidity to the mouth of the shell, allowing for improved cycling in both tube-fed and magazine-fed shotguns. The shell cup is made of brass-plated steel for reliable feeding and extraction to reduce the risk of jams. 

“It was certainly a challenge to find the right mix and match of our existing components that makeup this robust load. It took our teams a while to decide on the combination of head, primer, shot, wad system and hull to finalize the ideal recipe,” explained Turner. “We are extremely pleased with the results, and we know competition shooters will be happy too.”

Action Shotgun’s 1 1/8-oz. payload of high-quality No. 7.5 lead pellets is pushed out the muzzle at 1,235 fps. This velocity strikes the perfect balance: providing both the power needed to knock down targets and the shoot-ability to run through a course with both speed and precision.

The new shotshell loads also feature temp-stable powder and proven primers. They are bulk-packed in 200-round cases for convenience and reduced waste at the range.
