pink shotgun shells...

Federal brought them out this season and is donating money for breast cancer research. I bought two cases of 1-1/8oz #8 target loads. Good for both clays and skeet. Hats off to Federal for doing something really worthwhile...

I have more than enough of that kind of load, so I haven't bought any, but yeah, kudos to Federal for doing it.

I saw some on the ground at my club last week; that pink really does stand out.

Thanks Slugo for bringing this to my attention, I'll have to pick some up. Nice to see a Federal setting an example for other companies to follow.

Thats all our girls squad shot this season. The folks at Dicks Sporting Goods were great about keeping them in stock and giving us abreak on the price. I think its a great idea.
