Let’s say you need to buy shotgun ammo - what brands would you consider? Federal, Winchester, Fiocchi, Remington? These ammo manufacturers are on everyone’s lips, but you have other options. Estate, for example.
For several decades now, Estate Cartridge Inc. has been manufacturing a complete line of shotgun shells for hunting and target shooting. We also know that Estate is a part of Federal Ammunition and, consequently, Vista Outdoor, the umbrella brand for dozens of companies manufacturing outdoor and sporting goods. The manufacturing facilities of Estate are located in Anoka, Minnesota.
That’s all that is known about the company itself. However, we also know that Estate shotgun shells are great ammo chosen by many shooters and hunters.
Estate Shotgun Ammo for Hunting
The Estate Buckshot is probably the most popular product of the company. The Estate 12 gauge 00 buck is not only used for hunting medium and large game animals like coyotes and whitetail deer but also sees an application as defensive ammo.
Another popular load is the Estate 12 gauge 7.5 shot shotshells. The ammo is great for hunting fast-moving upland game birds like dove, quail, turkey, and pheasant. Well, Estate 20 gauge shotgun shells are also good for that job.
For waterfowl hunting, you need shotshells loaded with non-toxic steel shots. The reason is that ducks and geese consume spent pellets, and lead pellets cause poisoning. Estate manufactures quality steel shot shotshells for waterfowl hunting, which you can purchase at Gritr Sport, just like everything else mentioned before.

Competitive shooters are welcome to stock with target shotgun shells - the Estate Super Sport Competition Target. The ammunition is designed for skeet, trap, and sporting clays.
Estate shotshells pattern nicely and can be reloaded 3-4 times. But their biggest advantage is the price - Estate ammunition is among the cheapest on the market while offering good quality of loads. So don’t waste time and stock with Estate shotgun ammo at Gritr Sports now.
