Mein broke 192 clays out of 200 to win the Caribbean cup as well breaking 96 out of 100 to claim the Federal Challenge Championship. “I was aided by the hard breaks delivered from the Federal ammo I used over the weekend in 12, 20, 28 and .410 gauges,” said Mein.

Mein uses the Federal Premium Gold Medal Paper loads for his 12-gauge events and Top Gun Sporting 20, 28, and .410 loads for the sub-gauge specific competitions. In the sub-gauge events, Mein was equally as impressive breaking 92 percent of the targets he faced during the competitions.
