“Reloaders can now craft their next victory with the wad that's transforming clay target shooting,” said Federal Shotshell Product Director Dan Compton. “Our unique Podium Wads drive peak performance in the best competition target loads we make, and they’re now available as a component for reloading.”

The Podium Wad’s cylinder-shaped compression zone supports the payload at ignition for softer shooting. It also provides unmatched protection from deformation of the shot pellets at ignition, helping to deliver the best patterns with fewer flyers. Plus, the wad’s unique profile shape allows it to be loaded in all tapered hulls.

“HOA factory loads leave a trail of shattered targets in its wake and provides more reloads per shell. It’s hard, high-antimony lead payload and exclusive one-piece Podium Wad produce the most consistent patterns, while the solid brass head and tapered, one-piece hull make reloading easier than ever,” continued Compton. “We’ve virtually eliminated flyers with the Podium Wad, and with so many customers asking for it as a reloading component, it just makes sense to offer the Podium Wad in our catalog because our HOA hulls can be reloaded many times.”

Federal’s Podium Wads are available in both 1- and 1 1/8-ounce configurations; 500-count bags; MSRP: $18.99.
