Federal Premium Ammunition

Black Cloud FS Steel
When the skies open and ducks pour into your spread, put them on the water with Black Cloud® shotshells from Federal Premium®. The devastating loads wreak havoc on ducks and geese, and with four different offerings, hunters can choose the variety that's tailored to their specific needs.

Unmatched Performance

All Black Cloud loads feature two unique components not found in other waterfowl products: the FLITECONTROL® wad and FLITESTOPPER® (FS) steel.

The FLITECONTROL wad is a rear-braking system that controls the wad-shot separation for optimum patterns and maximum range. Federal Premium combines this technology with FS Steel®, which features a raised cutting edge that tears a devastating wound channel. In most Black Cloud loads, FS Steel is combined with traditional Premium® steel. The two types of shot have different flight characteristics, so a mix provides optimal patterns and the most lethal payload imaginable. The exclusive wad-shot combination creates more consistent, evenly distributed patterns, better downrange energy and more Knockdown Power®.

Options For All Hunters

Whether hunters seek teal or cans, high-flying snows or tough Canada geese, there's a specialized Black Cloud load perfect for the particular situation. Loaded in 10, 12 and 20 gauge and BBB, BB, #2, #3 or #4, standard Black Cloud is the ultimate choice for the everyday, die-hard duck or goose hunter.

Black Cloud Close Range features a 100 percent FLITESTOPPER payload that open up quickly, producing full, dense patterns at 20 to 30 yards. It's perfect for decoying or hunting flooded timber. This formula provides the most lethal payload possible in a highly specialized shotgun shell. Look for Close Range in 12- or 20-gauge 3-inch offerings.

Black Cloud High Velocity is made for hunters who need faster speeds and shorter lead times in #3 or #4. Hunters targeting larger ducks, such as divers and Northern mallards, should use the versatile #3. It's Phil Robertson's favorite load.
Hunters looking for high-velocity options in BB or #2 should opt for Black Cloud Snow Goose. It produces blistering speeds and is sized to take down all types of geese in spring or fall.
