Federal Premium Blackcloud uses the innovative FLIGHTSTOPPER steel pellet and the range extending FLITECONTROL wad shot shell that provides accuracy and power at range unlike any other for waterfowl hunting. Made with 40% sharp pellets, FLIGHTSTOPPER is an unstoppable force for bird hunting by providing excellent penetration, while FLITECONTROL’s wad opens in the rear to control and slow the wad in flight. This allows for greater accuracy through ported and waterfowl chokes at long-range. These 3” 12 gauge shotshells are filled with 1 ¼ oz of steel BBB shot and generate a muzzle velocity 1450 FPS. These rounds also use catalyst leadfree primer for cleaner burning, black nickel heads to prevent corrosion and feature sealed crimps to protect against damp conditions. 25 Federal Blackcloud 12 gauge shotshells come in each box.
Since 1922, Federal has been a producer of high quality rifle and shot shell ammunition. Based out of Anoka Minnesota, federal ammunition is American-made.
