Federal Premium Black Cloud Close Range

Federal Premium Black Cloud Close Range

It was a good problem to have: Federal Premium Ammunition’s Black Cloud loads patterned great for big birds at max ranges, but too tightly for ducks much inside 40 yards. The solution is Black Cloud Close Range. At its heart remains the FliteControl wad, but the payload is 100 percent FliteStopper steel shot to achieve full pattern spread at short distances. Available in 12-gauge 1¼-ounce 3-inch loads of nos. 2, 3 and 4 shot at 1,450 fps. www.federalpremium.com
