Federal Premium® has combined speed, hard-hitting pellets and a specialized wad to fold the highest doves, crows and pigeons, as well as pheasants and the most challenging upland birds. The powerful Hi-Bird™ load’s two-piece wad features SoftCell™ technology to decrease perceived recoil and produce more consistent long-range patterns. Plus, its lead shot is engineered for the optimum blend of hardness and density.
• High-power 12-gauge loads maximize long-range lethality on pigeons, doves and upland game
• Two-piece wad features SoftCell™ technology to decrease perceived recoil and produce better, more consistent long-range patterns
• Lead shot is engineered for the optimum blend of hardness and density for even patterns and more downrange energy
• Perfect for the field or competition
A Look Inside
With the best components, manufacturing processes and quality standards, every Federal Premium round offers the best performance possible.
Hi-Bird™ uses a two-piece wad to create an air pocket that absorbs energy and delays the compression process. The result of this SoftCell™ technology is recoil that hits the shooter’s shoulder later and with less force.
Hi-Bird™ uses hard, highly uniform lead pellets to prevent deformation and create the most consistent, even patterns possible.
