Federal Releases Top Gun Target Extra-Lite Load (Reduced Recoil)

Federal has added a 12 gauge low-recoil load to their  Top Gun Target range of ammunition.

The proven and affordable Top Gun® Target load line has been made even better this year with the addition of a special low-recoil 12-gauge offering.

High-volume shooters who need solid performance at a reasonable price depend on Federal® Top Gun Target loads. The hard, high-quality shot and unique wads result in consistent patterns that reliably break clay after clay. For 2013, Federal expanded the Top Gun line with a 7/8-ounce offering loaded with Alliant Powder® Extra-Lite propellant, which provides low recoil, consistent ignition and cleanliness.

Top Gun Target loads feature consistent, reliable Federal primers and an eight-segment crimp for trouble-free shooting. They are simply the best-value option a shooter could want.

    Great! I have an old Ithaca Long Range I saved from a buyback that’s a bunch of fun to shoot, but being fixed choke and quite old, I’d rather not shoot anything spicy out of it. This seems perfect.

    what’s the market for this?

    3 gunners? would low recoil hinder semi shotguns?

    I will have to pick up a case. I recently tried to get my woman into shooting (had never fired a gun before). She thought shooting trap was very fun, but the recoil from a 12 ga was to the point that she could barely finish a round (she has a very slim build) and she’s too tall (over 6′) for the club’s 20 ga to fit her properly. Maybe these will be just the ticket!
