Federal Custom Shop Ammunition Explained
Federal recently introduced its new online custom-loaded ammunition shop. Here, customers can order direct from several different shotshell and centerfire rifle offerings, with a wide selection of the best bullets from Federal, Speer, Nosler, Sierra, Berger, and more. In addition, custom TSS Shotshells for turkey, waterfowl and upland game are available.
“The Federal Custom Shop is an all-new way to deliver your preference of the perfect centerfire rifle or shotgun load built by our ammunition experts,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink.
Custom Shop products are for hunters and shooters who demand ammunition tailored for their individual needs at the highest level of quality, or who can’t find the right ammunition on the retail shelf.
“If it’s not in Federal’s vast catalog as factory-loaded ammo, we may have it listed on our website as a load we will custom hand-load for you. We now have a specific selection of rifle and TSS shotshell loads that we will build on-demand, per order.” Vanderbrink said. “For example, Barnes 120-grain Tipped TSX in 6.5-284 Norma and 28-gauge TSS turkey loads aren’t products we list in our catalog, but you can certainly order them through our Custom Shop.”
This new line of ammunition will be packed inside durable, high-quality Custom Shop packaging and then shipped directly to customers.
While many of us might be reloaders ourselves, we simultaneously know how time consuming and difficult it can be to formulate and execute the perfect handload for an upcoming, significant hunt. That is why it might be beneficial for many of us to utilize the Federal Custom Shop.
