Prairie Storm

PRAIRIE STORM

At Federal, we know pheasant and upland hunters want reliable loads that fill out patterns and hit birds hard. With Prairie Storm®, we set the standard. Hunters get downrange performance and edge-to-edge pattern consistency like no other shotshell.

Prairie Storm FS Lead

When tough, wild roosters get up near the edge of effective range, put them down with Prairie Storm FS Lead™. It’s built to meet the needs of most serious pheasant hunters and produces consistent patterns. Available in 12- and 20-gauge No. 4, 5 or 6.

Prairie Storm FS Steel

If you prefer to shoot steel payloads or hunt areas where non-lead shot is required, Prairie Storm FS Steel® is for you. It produces nearly the same 40-yard velocity and pellet energy as standard lead loads. Available in 12- and 20-gauge No. 3 and 4.

WHAT MAKES PRAIRIE STORM SO EFFECTIVE?

It capitalizes on the proven FLITECONTROL wad and a unique mix of FLITESTOPPER pellets. FS Steel pellets have a cutting edge that helps hit birds harder.

 

 
Prairie Storm FS Lead is loaded with FLITESTOPPER Lead and copper-plated lead pellets for full patterns at a variety of distances. This long-range performance pairs with excellent retained velocity to deliver powerful, consistent and lethal loads.

 
FS Steel pellets have a cutting edge that gets better penetration and hits birds harder. Our FS Steel loads get nearly the same 40 yard velocity and pellet energy as standard lead loads. That means a 3-inch #4 FS Steel load (216 pellets) can replace your standard 2-3/4-inch #5 lead (212 pellets).
