“I shot Federal Top Gun loads at the ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets National Championships this year. I have always trusted and liked them,” said DeTavernier. “However, for upcoming ATA competitions and for practice purposes, I will shoot the new Federal High Over All. I love these new HOA loads because they are a Premium load that shoots the same every time. I can see the precision in my breaks and my scores, these loads are awesome.”
