Federal Releases NEW 20-Gauge High Brass Game Load

There are plenty of reasons to hunt with a 20-gauge shotgun. Light, handy, and transferring less perceived recoil, 20-gauge shotguns have been a favorite of upland game hunters for years. It’s great to see ammunition companies, like Federal Premium, understand that these shooters need effective hunting loads for their 20-gauge shotguns. The latest in the train of new products from Federal intends to address just that. New for 2022, Federal Premium has announced two new 20-gauge High Brass Game Load options for upland and small game hunters.

Force X2 Shorty

The new 20-gauge loadings are both three-inch shells. They each deliver a 1 1/4-ounce payload. The shot size is where the two options diverge. These shells are available with either number five or number six shot. Federal says that the shot is formulated for optimum hardness for improved pattern efficiency. These also use a one-piece wad to ensure that your entire payload goes where it’s supposed to. Federal is using non-corrosive primers in these shells, so you can be sure they’ll ignite reliably. Each box comes packed with 25 shells, with an MSRP of $26.99.
