Federal Ammunition Announces New Hi-Bird Upland Loads with Fiber Wad

Federal Ammunition announces a new line extension to its popular Hi-Bird upland game hunting product line. Hi-BirdFiber (Paper) Wad’s cellulose wad construction helps minimize plastic left in the field, yet still offers the same hard-hitting performance as the original.

“The patented design of the fiber over-powder wad creates an effective gas seal, and the paper shot cup is designed to prevent barrel/shot contact and improve pattern performance,” said Dan Compton, Federal Shotshell Product Line Director. “Additionally, the overall fiber/paper wad system design helps reduce a shooter’s environmental impact on high-volume shoots.”

The new 12-gauge, No. 5 load’s high velocity (1,330 fps) and specially formulated lead shot produce downrange energy and pattern density that efficiently takes down birds at all shootable ranges. It’s available in 25-count boxes with an MSRP of $24.99.

“This new product was motivated by a customer need, because certain ranges and areas are beginning to require plastic-free wadding,” continued Compton. “We also offer the paper wad in cartridges tailored for the dove hunting and sporting target market, such as our Upland Steel and Top Gun loads.”
