Pallets of Federal shotshell ammunition to be used in competition by Team USA at the Olympics this summer in Tokyo are on the way to Japan. Federal—the official ammunition of USA Shooting—said the shipment left the docks this week with the final destination of Camp Asaksa, Japan, the venue for the Olympic shooting events.

Federal has shipped the shotshell ammunition that will help Team USA compete for gold medals at the Olympic Games.


Team members Kayle Browning, Brian Burrows, Vincent Hancock, Austen Smith and Derrick Mein will all compete with Federal shotshells in Tokyo in their quest to bring home medals for Team USA.

U.S. Olympic shotgun shooters headed to Japan this summer gave high praise to Federal target loads.

“The Gold Medal 24-gram International loads by Federal are incredible. They pattern so efficiently every time, and the shot size is consistent, so I never have to worry about my ammo not performing the way I need it to,” said Olympic trapshooter Kayle Browning. “I wouldn't trust any other load to take to the Olympics with me.”

Two-time Olympic medalist Vincent Hancock expressed his preference for Federal's paper shells. Earlier in May, Hancock won a silver medal at the 2021 ISSF World Cup Shotgun in Lonato, Italy.

“The Federal Gold Medal Paper load is the best ammo in the world. They knew what they were doing it when they named it ‘Gold Medal.’ It’s one of the highlights of my career to compete with such a quality brand of ammunition,” said Hancock. “I couldn’t be happier to be competing in the Olympics again for the fourth time in my career. I’m excited to put my talents to the test and see if I can get back onto the podium.”

In addition, Derrick Mein mentioned Federal Gold Medal target loads helped him during his preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.

“There is no greater honor than to get to represent the USA in the largest and most prestigious sporting event in the world. I have been firing a lot of Federal Gold Medal shotshells leading up to this event, which has helped me win championships. I am ready for the Olympics,” said Mein. “Federal’s consistency, quality and reliability allow me to focus on my skills and breaking targets without worry that my ammo will do the job, if I do mine.”
