Federal Premium Black Cloud FS Steel, 12GA 3" 1 1/4oz 1450FPS
12 GAUGE 3"
The best load in waterfowl hunting has never been so deadly. Black Cloud® FS Steel® is now equipped with the FLITECONTROL FLEX™ wad to deliver 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.

Ratings & Reviews
next to no cripples, hits hard and is a clean shooting shell.
packs a punch
#3's As stated..the pattern is denser and lethal at 40 yards
Worth the few dollars extra per box
by William H.
I've been shooting Black Cloud in 3 inch #3's for well over 5 years exclusively. The new formula is just as good, if not better. If the bird is within 40 yards and you make a good shot, it's dead. It'll down and sometimes cripple on longer passing shots over 50+ yards, but that's to be expected at that range. I can't tell much difference in performance, only that it still works as well as the older stuff. After shooting all these years, the guys I shoot with have all converted in order to lower the number of cripples from the cheaper steel shot. As I told them, by the time you shoot 2 or 3 shells to cripple and finish off a bird, you've already passed what it'd cost for 1 black cloud shell.
