NWTF and Federal Premium Ammunition unveil new products at NWTF national convention


EDGEFIELD, S.C. — Just in time for spring turkey season, Federal Premium Ammunition and the National Wild Turkey Federation have teamed up to bring turkey hunters the most advanced turkey loads on the market.

No matter where Federal Premium Ammunition’s premium turkey loads are purchased, hunters will positively impact the NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative, as a portion of the purchase price will come back to the NWTF, ensuring the future of hunting for years to come.

These products will be on display at the 42nd annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville at the Federal Premium Ammunition booth No. 1113 and available for purchase at the Turkey Shoppe.

Federal is offering an innovative new lineup of premium turkey loads, all sporting the NWTF logo showing the support of the mission. All the new loads feature the FLIGHTCONTROL FLEX wads that work in both ported and standard chokes for consistent and tight patterns.

  • The GRAND SLAM line features copper-plated shot, buffered with a clear wad card and a roll crimp.
  • The new HEAVYWEIGHT TSS line features tungsten-based shot that is 56 percent denser than lead at 18 grams/cc, and is available in No. 7 and No. 9 shot, as well as a .410 option. (Check your state game laws)
  • The updated 3rd Degree line now has HEAVYWEIGHT TSS No. 7 shot as a part of its three-stage payload that also includes No. 6 FLITESTOPPER and No. 5 copper-plated lead.

All of the new 12- and 20-gauge loads also feature improved hull printing with a special touch any turkey hunter will appreciate when admiring a gobbler they’ve just shot. There is a small tape measure graphic, in 1/8-inch increments, printed on the hull. Hunters can measure their spurs in the field with the hull to photograph and show their friends and share on social media.

So, look for the logo and support brands, like Federal Premium Ammunition, that have made a commitment to support the NWTF’s Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative.  

About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit an historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. The NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative is a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to raise $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
