Last year, Federal Premium redefined how turkey shotshells are supposed to perform with the introduction of 3rd Degree. Rather than simply pattern tightly like conventional loads, 3rd Degree uses a multi-shot, three-stage payload to deliver larger, more forgiving patterns at close range, while still providing deadly performance at long distance. The pattern of No. 5 Premium lead, No. 6 FLITESTOPPER lead and No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT® shot is maximized by the FLITECONTROL wad, which opens from the rear and stays with the shot column longer than conventional wads for full, consistent patterns. Shipments of this new ammunition are currently being delivered to dealers.

Features & Benefits
• New 20-gauge offering
• Three-stage payload creates optimal patterns for the entire range spectrum
• 20 percent No. 6 FLITESTOPPER pellets for forgiving close-range patterns
• 40 percent copper-plated lead No. 5 shot for lethal performance at mid-range
• 40 percent HEAVYWEIGHT for dense, high-energy patterns at 40-plus yards
• FLITECONTROL wad maximizes the flight characteristics of all three shot types
• A portion of the proceeds are donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation
