Federally sponsored shooters Derrick Mein and Vincent Hancock win 2023 World Cup selections

Federal Ammunition congratulates sponsored shooters and USA shooting athletes Derrick Mein and Vincent Hancock for winning the 2023 World Cup selections. The achievements occurred at the Shotgun Spring Selection Match which ran from 3-8 February in Tuscon, Arizona.

“Weather conditions made it a difficult battle,” Mein said. “Several members of the national team put quite a bit of pressure on me, so it was a close race. Multiple places on the team were decided by a tiebreaker after the final. It was an exciting event.”

With the wins, both Mein and Hancock earned the right to represent the US at the World Cup in Doha, Qatar, in March; the World Cup in Larnaca, Cyprus, at the end of March; and the French Grand Prix in Paris, France, at the end of April. Hancock will lead the Skeet Men’s National Team and Mein will lead the Trap Men’s National Team at those three Spring World Cup events.

“My 24 gram Federal High Over All cartridges got me through a tough couple of windy days,” Mein explained. “Knowing I was using the best ammunition allowed me to focus on hitting targets and not worry about the environment.”
