Hunters can now kill gobblers at longer distances than ever before with new HEAVYWEIGHT TSS from Federal Premium. Its payload of No. 7 or 9 HEAVYWEIGHT Tungsten Super Shot provides the highest pellet counts possible—up to double those of lead No. 5 loads of the same weight. The product line includes various 12- and 20-gauge offerings, as well a low-recoil .410 load. Shipments are being delivered to dealers.
HEAVYWEIGHT TSS pellets have a density of 18 g/cc—20 percent higher than standard tungsten and 56 percent more than lead. The result is the most penetration energy and the highest velocities at extreme range. Its rear-braking FLITECONTROL FLEX wad performs flawlessly through ported and standard turkey chokes for the most consistent, deadly patterns possible. Note, the .410 load (PTSS419 9) does not feature the FLITECONTROL FLEX wad.

Federal also updates previous turkey ammo lines
Federal Premium also has updated its entire turkey ammuntion line, with the new Grand Slam and 3rd Degree ammunition joining HEAVYWEIGHT TSS loads. These all replace previously available Federal Premium turkey products.
Grand Slam shotshells extend the range and lethality of conventional turkey loads, putting as many pellets as possible within a 10-inch circle without breaking the bank. 3rd Degree with HEAVYWEIGHT TSS uses a three-stage payload comprised of 40 percent No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT TSS shot, 20 percent No. 6 FLITESTOPPER lead and 40 percent No. 5 Premium lead to kill birds from spitting distance out to 50 yards.
All utilize the full-length FLITECONTROL FLEX wad, which was introduced with the launch of Federal Premium’s redesigned Black Cloud waterfowl shotshells. The wad’s unique design improves pattern density and consistency when fired through ported and non-ported chokes.
