Federal goes retro on shotshells

Minnesota-based Federal ammo, part of the huge Vista Outdoor empire, is celebrating 100 years in business by changing the packaging on its Top Gun 12 gauge No.8 shot target loads.

For this year, the loads will be shipped in one of four different Monark and Hi-Power branded 25-shell boxes. They are priced at $10.99 a pop, which is about the same price as the regular, blue-boxed Federal Top Gun loads these days, so both collectors and clays shooters get what they want.
