New Small Bore Shotgun Loads from Federal Premium

If you are a fan of small-bore shotguns, it can be frustrating to find the right load for the right task. Thankfully, Federal Premium has you covered for every load, ranging from buckshot and slug loads to the new High Over All competition target load available in 20 gauge, 28 gauge, and .410 bore.

The High Over All line of shotshells consists of thirty-one loads from 12 gauge to .410 bore geared toward trap, skeet, and clay games. Each shell features a high brass head for smooth loading and extraction and uses Federal’s proprietary Podium wad that keeps the shot column together in a tight cluster on its way to the target. In addition, this soft wad has enough flex to prevent deformation of the lead shot payload as it goes down the barrel, which cuts down on errant flyers in your pattern–a must when you are starting out with a small bore’s smaller payload.

The new small-bore High Over All loads include:

  • 20 gauge 7/8 ounce of No. 7 1/2 or No. 8 shot
  • 20 gauge 1/2 ounce of No. 9 shot
  • 28 gauge 3/4 ounce of No. 8, 8 1/2, or 9 shot
  • .410 bore 1/2 ounce of No. 8 1/2 or 9 shot

These new competition loads come in boxes of 25 rounds and have an MSRP of $16.99 for both standard and high-velocity 20 gauge loads. The 28 gauge and .410 bore loads are priced at $22.99.
