With Federal's introduction of Black Cloud TSS, duck and goose hunting has entered a new age. Now hunters can get that same performance in a 20-gauge load that blends No. 3 Flitestopper Steel with No. 9 18 g/cc Tungsten Super Shot, shipments of which have begun to arrive at dealers. Fifty-six-percent denser than lead, and double the density of steel, TSS pellets maintain energy and velocity far faster, penetrating deeper than any waterfowl payload. The Flitecontrol Flex wad, meanwhile, opens from the rear for a controlled release of the payload, and a consistent pattern.
“The hard-hitting TSS pellets make up 60 percent of the payload, our Flitestopper steel pellets make up the remaining 40 percent,” said Federal Shotshell product manager Dan Compton. “A raised cutting ridge encircling the exterior gives the pellets an unparalleled ability to slice through feathers and flesh, with no loss of penetration or adverse effect on ballistics and flight characteristics. Flitestopper steel creates significantly larger wound channels than standard round pellets. Coupled with TSS, this blended load delivers extremely impressive results.”
