“We are excited to add “Made for the Outdoors” to our list of Emmy Award-Winning productions,” said show host and producer Bill Sherck. “Federal Premium Ammunition was a no-brainer as we looked at which local outdoor company had the best story to tell. The quality of Prairie Storm loads and Federal Premium Ammunition’s dedication to upland conservation was an obvious story to us to include in “Made for the Outdoors.”

The award-winning show is available for viewing on the show’s website,, under Federal Shotgun Shells (Episode 8).

“We are honored to have the Federal Premium Ammunition story told by a great content producer and media partner in Ron Schara Productions,” said Vista Outdoor Vice President of Marketing Brett Merrell.  “This program captured the dedication and commitment that our employees have when producing a premium product for consumers who pursue their passions. It’s great to see our media partner’s excellent storytelling of the Federal Premium Ammunition’s quality process, and I am proud to see the people behind the making of a shotshell recognized with this prestigious award.”
