Federal's Shotgun Shell website is pathetic.

    Went to Federals website to check out the "New Speedshok" loads, then clicked on "Details" and they don't even list the velocity. All I wanted to check out was the speed to see if they ramped it up on certain loads. Tried to talk to a technician and they told me somebody would call me back in 24 hours! Unbelievable, how these people stay in business, or have a job. Definitely NOT IMPRESSED.

    Anyhow, the technician from Federal called me back and told me it's a computer problem and they are aware of it. Unfortunately the loads I was inquiring about are the same speed as they were.

    Federals been like that for years, you have a question and they may get back to you in 2 or 3 days if at all, try Winchester they are even worse. Kent is very helpful, Remington used to be haven't called them in quite a while.

    This isn't Federal's own website, but I just got a Roger's email that speedshok 3" is "$70 off per case". Now just $109, the same price they were regular a week ago lol. What a deal! Still the same price, but now it's $70 off!

    So today is May 3rd, it's been 2.5 weeks since I talked to a "Federal Technician" who told me the reason they don't list the velocity on their speed shok loads was "a computer problem" Today they still don't show them. What in the *** is wrong with these people?
