Federal’s New Upland Steel Loads Are Perfect for High-Volume Hunts

ANOKA, Minnesota - August 19, 2019 - Federal is pleased to announce new Upland Steel loads in 12- and 20-gauge, which are perfect choices for doves and other light upland game, especially in areas that require the use of non-lead shot. Shipments of Federal Upland Steel ammunition have been delivered to dealers.

“This is an ultra-reliable, cost-effective, high-performance steel load offered in the smaller shot sizes that high-volume upland hunters are looking for,” said Federal Shotshell Product Director Rick Stoeckel. “For example, it’s definitely a great option for those who are required to shoot steel when hunting dove.”

With these new loads, doves are done. Federal Upland Steel serves up the patterns and power hunters need for hard-to-hit birds at a price that keeps them shooting all day. The loads are consistent and reliable, with high velocities that make the most of the steel payload.
