Top Gun loads deliver trusted performance specifically designed for excellence in all applications of clay target shooting.

They feature hard, quality pellets for breaking more clays; consistent, reliable Federal primers; and unique wad column to produce consistent patterns. Loads are available in a wide variety of velocities, shot size and payload options for 12-, 20- and 28-guage, plus .410 bore.
