Upland hunters get the latest in shotshell technology in a non-toxic option. Prairie Storm™ lead loads brought performance on pheasants to a whole new level. Federal Premium went back to the drawing board to develop these steel pheasant loads. They decided on a 50/50 mix of Premium® Steel and FLITESTOPPER® Steel in a 1-1/8 oz. payload at 1600 fps.
ANOKA, Minn. – September 2, 2011–Federal Premium Ammunition brings pheasant hunters a new non-tox option with Prairie Storm® FS Steel®. These new loads feature the patented FLITECONTROL Wad and a unique mix of FLITESTOPPER® and Premium® Steel for unprecedented patterns on birds. Prairie Storm FS Steel loads can be found on store shelves now.
Patterning Makes Perfect
Federal Premium continues to use the unique and proven FLITECONTROL wad to help performance in the field. The new Prairie Storm 12 and 20-gauge steel options feature a mix of 50% Premium Steel and 50% FS Steel to give pheasant hunters perfect patterns. This mix was decided on after extensive testing with brand new, industry leading patterning software.
“Prairie Storm steel loads offer a unique advantage,” said Ammunition Director Rick Stoeckel. “We did a lot of development to ensure these loads were designed for pheasant hunters. This fall, pheasant hunters will see the advantages of these loads with increased steel performance and less lost or crippled birds.”
Federal Premium has also added 20-gauge 2-3/4” Prairie Storm FS Lead loads. To learn more about the entire Federal line, go to www.FederalPremium.com.
