Federal Premium Introduces Hi-Bird Upland Shotshells

May 16, 2017

ANOKA, Minnesota –  Federal Premium Ammunition is proud to announce its new Hi-Bird shotshell, which combines 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. Shipments are currently being delivered to dealers.

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. The result is dense long-range patterns with more energy.

Features & Benefits

  • 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
