Federal Premium recently announced its newest online initiative, the Federal Custom Shop. Customers can choose from several different specialized shotshell and centerfire rifle offerings. The list includes a wide selection of the best bullets from Federal, Nosler, Sierra, Berger, Barnes and more. Additionally, it offers custom TSS Shotshells for turkey, waterfowl and upland game. Federal ships all orders direct to the customer.

“The Federal Custom Shop is an all-new way to deliver your preference of the perfect centerfire rifle or shotgun load built by our ammunition experts,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink.

For example, centerfire rifle shooters can choose numerous bullets and from more than 10 different cartridges. The list includes 6.5-284 Norma, 257 Weatherby, 243 Winchester, 257 Roberts +P, 6.5 Creedmoor and more. Shotshell customers can custom order a large variety of loads including 10-gauge and 28-gauge. Federal also offers shotgun loads with unique payload sizes or loaded in 2 3/4-inch hulls for lower recoil. A lot of ammunition opportunities exist at Federal’s Custom Shop, and it will only grow in time.

“If it’s not in Federal’s vast catalog as factory-loaded ammo, we may have it listed on our website as a load we will custom hand-load for you. We now have a specific selection of rifle and TSS shotshell loads that we will build on-demand, per order,” 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.”

Federal’s expert engineers painstakingly handload each Custom Shop Round in the company’s state-of-the-art reloading workshop. These veteran craftsmen combine the best components with extra quality checks at every stage for consistent velocity, accuracy and performance. They then hand-check loads for final inspection, before cleaning and custom packing for shipment. Each package ships signed by the engineer that loaded it.
