HEVI-Shot has announced a new line of extensions to its HEVI-18 Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) product line which brings best-in-class performance to the turkey market with 18 g/cc density pellets in No. 7 and 9 shot. The loads provide high pellet counts, long-range lethality, and incredibly tight patterns. Four new loads are now offered in 2-3/4-inch, reduced-recoil 12- and 20-gauge loads, as well as two 3-inch, 28-gauge options.

3-inch and 3-1/2-inch, 12-gauge loads are commonplace in the turkey hunting world, but Hevi-Shot introduced new reduced recoil 2-3/4-inch loads. With the use of TSS, the shorter hull size delivers the ability to reduce the felt recoil, yet still have impressive results downrange. These new loads are ready for wild turkey hunting seasons this fall.

HEVI-Shot’s HEVI-18 Turkey product line now consists of twelve total load options, available in 12-, 20-, or 28-gauge, and .410 bore. As far as their new 28-gauge loads go, it’s the perfect stop gap between 410 bore and 20-gauge. The 28-gauge will be the hot topic for wild turkey hunters this fall and in spring of 2024.

The new ammunition products are loaded in 5-round boxes. For more information on all products from HEVI-Shot, visit

Federal Ammunition announces a line extension to the Punch self-defense product family with the addition of the all-new 30 Super Carry Cartridge. Federal engineers designed both Punch ammunition and the new 30 Super Carry cartridge from the ground up for self-defense, and the two have come together in a load that shoots effectively.

Punch was specifically engineered to provide balanced terminal performance across different platforms and through the most common barriers. Similarly, Federal created the 30 Super Carry cartridge around the unique needs of self-defenders who carry concealed, delivering the power of 9mm Luger, with more magazine capacity and dramatically less recoil. The blending of the two technologies gives shooters an extremely easy-to-shoot and effective option for real-world defense.

Summary of features include significantly less recoil than 9mm Luger; same power as 9mm Luger with as many as 3 more rounds of magazine capacity in currently available handguns; balanced performance across different platforms and through the most common barriers; and the Punch 103-grain jacketed hollow-point bullet design.
