Shooting clays out of the sky can be great training for bird hunters. It’s no wonder these shooters are drawn to competing in the sport. For those who take their clay shooting seriously, Federal has released the new Top Gun Lead and Steel shotshells. These are designed specifically for bringing clays down to Earth and they use a paper over-powder wad to reduce plastic on the ground.
Federal Premium news @ OutdoorHub:

Federal Top Gun Lead and Steel Shotshells
Federal’s Top Gun line offers lead and steel shotshells. They use a cellulose-based filler to keep the shot patterns consistent, as well as over-powder paper wads to help reduce the amount of plastic on the ground. There are two lead and two steel options, giving shooters a total of four choices, all of which are 12-gauge, 2 3/4″ shells. When it comes to lead, both 7.5 and 8 shot is available. Both use a 1 1/8 ounce payload and fly at 1,200 feet per second. If steel is your bag, 7.5 shot is your singular option. While both steel options use a one-ounce payload, one gives you 1,250 feet per second, while the other pumps it up to 1,300 feet per second.
