Federal Premium has announced the addition of several new shot size offerings to its improved Black Cloud FS Steel with FliteControl Flex lineup, including various new No. 1 and No. 3 loads in both 12- and 20-gauge.

Equipped with Federal’s 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. The Catalyst lead-free primer and clean-burning, temperature-stable propellant drastically reduces residue in the barrel.

New offerings include:
• 12-gauge, 3½-inch, 1½ oz., No. 1, 1500 fps | $36.95 per 25-rnd. box
• 12-gauge, 3½-inch, 1½ oz., No. 3, 1500 fps | $33.95 per 25-rnd. box
• 12-gauge, 3-inch, 1¼ oz., No. 1, 1450 fps | $27.95 per 25-rnd. box
• 20-gauge, 3-inch, 1 oz., No. 1, 1350 fps | $24.95 per 25-rnd. box
• 20-gauge, 3-inch, 1 oz., No. 3, 1350 fps | $24.95 per 25-rnd. box
• 12 gauge, 3-inch, 1⅛ oz., No. 1, 1635 fps, High Velocity | $27.95 per 25-rnd. box
