Want custom-made TSS turkey loads? Federal makes it possible.
The company has introduced its new online custom-loaded ammunition shop. In addition to custom turkey loads, waterfowl and upland game loads can also be ordered. Big game hunters can choose from several different centerfire rifle offerings with a wide selection of the best bullets from Federal, Nosler, Sierra, Berger, Barnes and more. Orders are shipped direct to consumers.
Shotshell customers can custom order a variety of loads, including 10 gauge and 28 gauge. Shotshells with unique payload sizes are loaded in 2 3/4-inch hulls for reduced recoil are also possible. Many ammunition options exist at Federal’s Custom Shop that will appeal to customer personal preferences. And the long list will change as the shop grows.
“If it’s not in Federal’s vast catalog as factory-loaded ammo, we may have it listed on our website as a load that we will custom handload for you. We now have a specific selection of rifle and TSS shotshell loads that we will build on-demand, per order,” Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink said. “For example, Barnes 120-grain Tipped TSX in 6.5-284 Norma and 28-gauge TSS turkey loads aren’t products we list in our catalog, but you can certainly order them through our Custom Shop.”
According to the company, each round is handloaded to order by engineers in their state-of-the-art reloading workshop. These veteran craftsmen combine the best components with extra quality checks at every stage for the most consistent velocity, accuracy and overall performance. Loads are then hand-checked for final inspection and cleaned before being custom-packed in durable packaging signed by the engineer who handloaded it.
