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

  • FLITECONTROL wad maximizes the flight characteristics of all three shot types
  • A portion of the proceeds are donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation

  1. I see we reinventing the wheel again. Every Bird I,ve ever killed over the last 30sum years has died at the hands of my Browning BPS and plain ole 2-3\4″ 4 shot high brass game loads. I buy whatever’s on sale. Instead of inventing crap We don’t need, maybe these manufacturer s should concentrate on keeping Ammo affordable?

    1. @Dave….Like Turkey Hunters don’t already have more Calls than they could ever possibility use? Plus the last time I bothered with a Rebate, it only took 8 WEEKS to get my money back. If Federal can afford to hand out Rebates, they’re over charging in the first place.

    2. More calls than they can use, but those darn turkey vests have so many pockets that need filling!

  2. I use a Mossberg 835 , chambered for 3 1/2 inch shells. I shoot Remington 3 1/2 #4 shot. It sure packs a punch! May give these a try if they get on the shelves before spring turkey season starts. Last year, Wally world didn’t get turkey shot stocked on the shelf a day before the start of the season, so I couldn’t pattern my shotgun. But a friend gave me a whole box of the Remington shells. Never the less, for three days of hunting, not a single turkey came out from hiding. Better luck next spring I guess!
