This is a video of Federal’s new turkey load, which they are calling 3rd Degree. There’s no official video of it yet, but Federal’s PR guy JJ Reich shot this for us on his cell phone from the depths of the company’s test range. 3rd Degree, in the tradition of Federal’s long forgotten “Tri-Power” shells, contains three different-sized pellets in its payload. It mixes ridged lead Flitestopper 6 shot with copper-plated lead 5s and tungsten-iron Heavyweight 7 shot. They are layered in a Flitecontrol wad, the same wad used in Black Cloud. The wad is designed to hold the shot charge together for several feet as it emerges from the muzzle.
