Federal Ammunition has introduced a new line of shotshell loads on the heels of this year’s Olympics. The new High Over All (HOA) shotshell loads are intended for competitive use and offer shooters better reloadability and more consistent shot patterns. Federal has optimized these loads for trap, skeet, and sporting clay shooters that need the best that Federal Ammunition can offer its customers.

New High Over All Competition Shotgun Loads Introduced by Federal
The new loads were showcased at the Minnesota HOA State Champion Shoot which was held at the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club in Prior Lake, Minnesota at the end of August. During this event, several of Federal’s engineers, shooters, ambassadors, and competitors were present to test out the new loads in a competitive environment.
“We are excited to build on the great momentum of this new product line. Competition shooters have been asking for a new competition load from Federal—and we’ve delivered with the best ever. Top shoots across the country have been buzzing about our new HOA product and we look forward to rolling it out over the next months leading up to the National Sporting Clays Tournament in Texas.
” -Jason Vanderbrink, President, Federal Ammunition
