ANOKA, Minnesota - November 11, 2020 - New 16- and 28-gauge Federal Premium Prairie Storm FLITESTOPPER (FS) Lead loads use the updated FLITECONTROL FLEX wad and a mixed payload of standard pellets with FS lead to produce full, consistent patterns from these smaller payloads. The improved wad design can be used through both ported and standard chokes for better patterning and versatility. Shipments of this product have begun to arrive at dealers.

“Our all-new 28- and 16-gauge offerings use the full-length FLITECONTROL FLEX wad, which was introduced with the launch of Federal Premium’s redesigned Black Cloud waterfowl shotshells and HEAVYWEIGHT TSS turkey loads. The wad’s unique design improves pattern density and consistency when fired through ported and non-ported chokes,” said Dan Compton, Federal Shotshell Product Manager. “FLITESTOPPER pellets feature a raised cutting ridge encircling the exterior gives the pellets an unparalleled ability to slice through feathers and flesh, with no loss of penetration or adverse effect on ballistics and flight characteristics. This cutting action creates significantly larger wound channels.”

These enhanced design elements deliver holes in the bird, not the pattern. Testing done at the Federal Factory in Anoka, MN shows a No. 4 load puts more than 75 percent of its pattern in a 30-inch circle at 40 yards with a modified choke.

Features
• New options for sub-gauge shotguns, specifically 16- and 28-gauge
• FLITECONTROL FLEX wad can be used through all upland chokes
• Payload mix of 70 percent standard copper-plated lead and 30 percent FS Lead
• FS lead produces even edge-to-edge patterns and creates large wound channels
• Time-tested, ultra-effective powder and a reliable primer.
• Supports Pheasants Forever through on-box royalty program

So far, Federal has sold more than 55 million of these special shotshells to support these important organizations.
