Federal Premium Expands Load Options for Black Cloud with FLITECONTRL FLEX

ANOKA, Minnesota – August 20, 2018 -Federal Premium has added new shot size offerings to its improved Black Cloud line. This includes various new loadings of shot size No. 1 and No. 3 in both 12- and 20-gauge. Shipments of this ammunition have been delivered to dealers.

Equipped with the new FLITECONTROL FLEX wad, the new loads deliver improved pattern density and consistency through both ported and standard waterfowl chokes. The wad’s redesigned rear-deploying petals and side-mounted vents stimulate the payload for separation from the wad at the ideal moment for dense, deadly patterns. Plus, the efficient Catalyst lead-free primer and clean-burning, temperature-stable propellant significantly decrease residue in the barrel.
