3RD DEGREE®

40 percent No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT: Groups tightly at the pattern's center for long-range lethality

The FLITECONTROL® wad opens from the rear for a perfectly timed release from the payload

40 percent No. 5 Premium® lead: Creates a dense, deadly pattern at midrange

20 percent No. 6 FLITESTOPPER lead: Spreads quickly to create a forgiving close-range pattern

FLITECONTROL FLEX™

FLITECONTROL FLEX™ WAD

Rear-opening petals open in the rear to create an air brake. This separates the wad and shot at the perfect time and leads to consistent, dense patterns

Gussets reinforce the petals, allowing them to deploy through ported chokes that reduce muzzle pressure

Vents on side of wad allow air in and help stimulate the payload for separation from the wad

FLITESTOPPER® PELLET

Get cutting power with no loss of penetration. Whether lead or steel, FLITESTOPPER pellets create a massive wound cavity that devastates game on impact. We also use their unique flight characteristics to tailor patterns to the specific application.
