ANOKA, Minnesota - June 16, 2015 - New Federal Premium® Vital-Shok™ High Density® buckshot is already the load of choice for feral hog exterminators who work for various government agencies. They’ve proven that its nine-pellet 00 buck tungsten-alloy payload and 1,600 fps muzzle velocity give it superior stopping power compared to lead loads. For 2015, Federal Premium® has made High Density buckshot available to the general public. Shipments of this new ammunition are currently being delivered to distributors.

Because the payload of Vital-Shok High Density buckshot is lighter than equivalent lead loads, it produces less felt recoil, yet offers higher velocities and more downrange energy. The FLITECONTROL® wad ensures consistent, deadly patterns, making High Density an excellent choice for predators, hogs and more.

Features & Benefits
• Tungsten-alloy pellet construction
• 1,600 fps muzzle velocity
• FLITECONTROL wad produces tight, lethal patterns
• Proven choice of hog-control specialists
• Manageable recoil
• Higher velocities and more downrange energy than equivalent lead payloads
