MidwayUSA Introduces Exclusive Federal Ammunition for Vintage Shotguns

by MidwayUSA
Columbia, MO -

MidwayUSA, a catalog and Internet retailer offering Just About Everything® for Shooting, Reloading Gunsmithing and Optics, is pleased to announce the addition of a new load of shotshell ammunition from Federal Ammunition specifically designed for vintage side-by-side shotguns requiring a reduced pressure load.

"For some time, I have been handloading this particular shell for my personal shooting and we wanted to share this load with our customers who may be fans of vintage shotguns," said Larry Potterfield, President and CEO of MidwayUSA.

This ammunition was produced specifically for MidwayUSA to the following specifications:

  • 12-gauge
  • 2 ¾ inch shell
  • 7/8 oz of #7 ½ shot
  • 1,200 feet per second velocity
  • 5,000 pounds of chamber pressure

These specifications were designed to be kind and gentle to all older, break-open shotguns that are safe to shoot with modern ammunition.  This ammunition is also ideal for trap and skeet practice and for a light game load - wherever a 20 gauge load would be acceptable.  Perfect for light weight game guns and for youth shooting or anyone sensitive to recoil.  Please note – this ammunition will not function in most semi-auto actions.

Using Product Number 613-940, a case of 10 boxes of shells may be purchased from MidwayUSA for $64.99.
