Federal Ammunition Shoots Out 3 Loads of 28 Gauge to their Game-Shok Line


If you are of the select group of people that still loves a good 28-Gauge shotgun, there is some good news on the horizon. Federal is offering more 28-Gauge loads through their Game-Shok line of ammunition. What you shall soon be seeing available at brick ‘n mortar stores are loads in #5, #6 and #7.5 shot.

Federal Ammunition out of Anoka, MN had this to say about the new offerings:

Federal Ammunition is proud to add a trio of shotshell options to its proven Game-Shok lineup aimed at hunters who enjoy the light weight and easy-handling of a 28-gauge shotgun. Shipments of the new loads—offered in 5, 6 and 7.5 shot—are currently being delivered to dealers.

Game-Shok products are renowned for offering small game hunters superior, volume-priced performance. The new 28-gauge loads push their 1-ounce payload of hard, uniform lead shot at 1,220 fps and produce consistent, reliable patterns suited to a variety of upland birds.

As you can see, these are very bread ‘n butter hunting/sporting loads. Some people might say this is not setting the world on fire, but not everything has to be a reinvention of the wheel. The specific shotgun loads available are as follows.

Game-Shok Heavy Field 28-GaugeGame-Shok

  • #7.5 Shot, 1 Ounce, 2 3/4″ – MSRP $19.95
  • #6 Shot, 1 Ounce, 2 3/4″ – MSRP $19.95
  • #5 Shot, 1 Ounce, 2 3/4″ – MSRP $19.95

Fall will be coming soon enough and for most of the US it will be perfect timing for upland bird seasons to open up. So if you fancy bringing a 28-Gauge into the field, it may be worth giving these new Game-Shok loads a shot whether you are chasing grouse, quail or clay pigeons.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    How about making some 12g mini shot shells like Aguila says they make but i cant find for sale. Id like to get that adapter that makes them work in my mossberg pump but why bother, they are always out of stock. PS i want the slug versions please. Hello? Is anyone out there? Use the workers you are laying off Federal, please.

      So much attitude! Relax man. Send an angry letter. ATK doesn’t read comments. They are a large corporation. It’s about their profit man.

      And what is this about needing an adapter for the 500? Last i checked they worked just fine?
