Shotshell

12 Gauge

The venerable 12-gauge is the workhorse of shotshells, with loads fine-tuned to every conceivable application.

Gold Medal Grand™ Plastic

For decades, Gold Medal® shotshells have set the standard-and world records-for competitive trap, skeet and sporting clays shooters. Now we have improved upon the industry-leading design with Gold Medal Grand™. The loads produce less recoil, and more reliable ignition, improved shot hardness and excellent reloadability-all with the same world-class performance shooters expect from Federal Premium® Ammunition.

3rd Degree®

As turkey loads have been engineered to pattern more tightly and reach farther, they have also become less forgiving at close range, leading to missed birds. Federal Premium® 3rd Degree® uses a three-stage payload to deliver lethal patterns at any range.

Black Cloud® FS Steel®

Equipped with the FLITECONTROL FLEX™ wad, Black Cloud® delivers 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. Plus, the efficient Catalyst™ lead-free primer and clean-burning, temperature-stable propellant significantly decrease residue in the barrel.
