As turkey loads have been engineered to pattern more tightly and reach farther, they have also become less forgiving at close range, leading to missed birds. 3rd Degree uses a multi-shot, three-stage payload to deliver lethal patterns at any range. It is 20 percent No. 6 FLITESTOPPER pellets for forgiving close-range patterns; 40 percent copper-plated No. 5 lead for the most lethal performance at mid-range; 40 percent No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT for dense, high-energy patterns at 40+ yards; FLITECONTROL wad maximizes the flight characteristics of all three shot types. It's the most versatile turkey load Federal has ever produced. Note: the FLITECONTROL wad is designed for use with standard choke tubes. Aftermarket chokes that are ported or designed to strip the wad may interfere with its performance.
