20200216_212050_edited

I’ll be kicking March off with a look at SIG’s 300 BLK offerings, the company’s FMJ Supersonic 300 BLK and their Match Grade rendition. SIG SAUER designs and manufactures all of its ammunition products in their Arkansas plant and is delivering ammunition at a level of performance that should have some of its competition concerned.

Streamlight Introduced New Lights at Shot Show 2020

Shot Show 2020 - Streamlight

Streamlight was busy in 2019 addressing a number of market needs. It’s impossible to cover all of the company’s lighting products in this space so I’ll limit myself to their tactical offerings. Streamlight’s success has always been their ability to deliver quality at a value price backed by superb customer service. Some of its competitors produce extraordinary lighting products as well but are you getting something that is significantly better, my answer is no. Economists often talk about diminishing returns, which simply means am I getting $600 worth of benefit out of this $600 weapon mounted light? If you’re a SOF operator maybe the answer is yes but if you are local, state, county or federal law enforcement agency, probably not. This is what makes Streamlight such a no brainer.

For 2020, Streamlight has added 6 new offerings to the company’s very successful TLR line of weapon mounted lights and laser/light combinations.

157

 The TLR RM 1 is a 500 Lumen Compact Tactical Long Gun Light with Remote Pressure Switch. It features independently operating push-button and remote pressure switches to provide the security of knowing you’ll always have light. Packaged as a kit offering everything you need to mount to your long gun. The TLR RM 1 is powered by one CR123A lithium battery (included), is IPX7; waterproof to 1m for 30 minutes and only 3.2” (8.12 cm); 2.74 oz. (77.9 g).

158

The TLR RM 2 is a 1000 Lumen Low Profile Long Gun Lighting System with Remote Pressure Switch. It features independently operating push-button and remote pressure switches to provide the security of knowing you’ll always have light. Packaged as a kit offering everything you need to mount to your long gun. The TLR RM2 is powered by two CR123A lithium batteries (included), is IPX7; waterproof to 1m for 30 minutes and only 4.55” (11.55 cm); 4.55 oz. (129.0 g).

TLR-9® GUN LIGHT WITH AMBIDEXTROUS REAR SWITCH OPTIONS

The TLR 9 mounts to your rail equipped pistol. Streamlight did something for 2020 that I can’t say enough about, they’ve implemented high and low switch variants. Those of you familiar with the TLR-7 and TLR-8 know that more often than not you had to reach with your support hand to operate the light, this is particularly for compact frames. The TLR-9 solves that problem with a high or low implementation.TLR-7®A GUN LIGHT WITH REAR SWITCH OPTIONS

For 2020, Streamlight has also introduced the TLR-7A and TLR-8A. The new models feature high and low switches.

165

 Streamlight’s Macrostream USB is a USB Rechargeable, Bright Small LED Flashlight. It’s Ultra-compact personal light, which fits in the palm of your hand or comfortably in your pocket. It offers two modes high and low  accessible by a double tap of the tailcap switch. On high, it delivers 250 lumens a 68m beam and runs 1.5 hours. On low you have 50 lumens a 31m beam and runs 3.5 hours

186

THE SIDEWINDER BOOT® HANDS FREE MILITARY FLASHLIGHT is the new standard flashlight for boot camp, recruit/basic training and wherever extra military instruction occurs. It features a white LED with high and low modes. On high you get  55 lumens, a 63m beam and runtime of 8 hours. On low the recruit has 7 lumens, a 24m beam and runtime of 90 hours. The integrated slide-in-place red filter provides the recruit with a task light that also preserves night vision. SIDEWINDER BOOT® is IPX7; waterproof to 1m for 30 minutes features a durable Belt/Clothing clip with integral helmet mount all in a compact package: 4.29″ (10.9 cm); 3.52 oz. (100g) with alkaline batteries (included); 2.88 oz. (82g) with lithium batteries and it’s available in Coyote.

ZEISS Precision Rings Portfolio Continues to Grow

 

pr-side-view-350x350

Six New Ring Set Options Added to the Already Impressive Lineup

White Plains, NY – February 13, 2020

ZEISS announces the addition of six new sets of rings to the trusted and field-proven series of ZEISS Precision Rings that were introduced early in 2019. ZEISS raises the bar by offering features like an integral anti-cant bubble level, integral recoil lug, and unique designs that incorporate specialized machining and finishing processes to prevent scope marring as well as more functional aspects other mounting options just don’t offer. The new options include two additional 30 mm ring heights as well as four 34 mm variants.  There are 11 different ZEISS Precision Ring options to select from, in 30 mm, 34 mm, and 36 mm diameters, and are now available at authorized ZEISS retailers.

ZEISS follows their mantra of “Confidence in the Toughest Conditions” more than ever with ZEISS Precision Rings.  They are manufactured to the highest of standards from premium materials and tight tolerances for long-term security and heavy-duty field applications. A refined design boasts low-profile, non-snagging hardware and micro-radiused machining on all leading edges, where scope contact is made, to ensure that these rings don’t mar the scope’s finish.  The manufacturing and construction from ultra-durable 7075-T6 aluminum results in a Mil-Spec grade and STANAG compliant mounting solution for precise, accurate and repeatable shots on target.

“The ZEISS scope ring lineup is designed to the same high standard as the rest of our products for 2020,” said Kyle Brown, Director of Marketing/Product – ZEISS Consumer Products for Carl Zeiss SBE, LLC. “These precision rings are constructed to secure the highest quality scopes on the market and deliver the high-performance results expected by ZEISS customers. Immediately upon inspection, it’s obvious that they’re different. We made exceptional mechanical and design enhancements to the typical 1913 Mil-Spec scope rings available today. Having confidence in your equipment is what ultimately leads to a great first-shot-on-target down-range and these rings do just that.”

ZEISS Precision Rings follow a smarter, sleeker, and ultra-lightweight ring design for all heavy-duty hunting and shooting applications.

Southeast Missouri State University Anthropologist Partners with Othram for Identification of Human Remains

Human remains recovered in 1979 in Charleston, Missouri, receive renewed attention at Southeast Missouri State University as an invaluable learning tool for today’s advanced approaches to human identification and cold case resolution.

Forensic depiction of Charleston, MO John Doe

Image credit: Anthony Redgrave

The Woodlands, TX (February 2020) Othram, the leading forensic sequencing laboratory for law enforcement, is working with an anthropologist from Southeast Missouri State Universityto use forensic genealogy to help identify human remains found on a farm in Charleston, Missouri, in 1979.

Associate Professor of Anthropology at Southeast Missouri State University, Jennifer Bengtson, inherited the case when she joined the faculty in 2012. The highly fragmented remains were burned and unidentifiable through traditional testing methods. Bengtson committed herself to establishing an identity for the remains and also wanted to leverage this case as a learning opportunity for her students. She and her students reopened the case and began the process of reanalysis for age, sex, ancestry, and stature. In 2015, the case was entered into NamUs, a national information clearinghouse and resource center for missing, unidentified, and unclaimed persons across the US. In 2016, a bone sample was sent to the University of North Texas for CODIS testing, but with no successful hit to a known identity.

As Bengtson heard more about the growing success of forensic genealogy in solving cold cases, she decided to incorporate these tools into her analysis of this case and educational program.

“The more I started to hear about forensic genealogy in the news, the more I thought these methods could help with this case,” Bengtson commented. “One of the things that I emphasize to my students is that they need to learn to work and communicate with specialists from a variety of disciplines.”

Bengtson started a donation page to raise funding for the project and decided to partner with Othram for Forensic-Grade Genome SequencingTM to reconstruct a genome from the remains. Othram’s forensic genealogy team, led by Anthony and Lee Redgrave, will provide genetic genealogical research support and allow Bengtson’s students to be part of the investigative process.

“We are excited to assist on such a challenging case,” David Mittelman, Othram CEO commented, “our lab specializes in reconstructing genomes from heavily degraded and contaminated evidence.”

Anthony Redgrave, whose doctoral work in Transformative Leadership in Education focuses on forensic genealogy education and training for law enforcement, developed a virtual classroom experience for Bengtson’s students. Bengtson’s students will use the virtual classroom to stay involved in the identification effort. He has also created a depiction of what the deceased may have looked like in life, using digital compositing and painting techniques. Redgrave worked with photos of the deceased’s skull and partial mandible to make the image. “I hope that putting a face to these remains will help the public to connect with the case and possibly even jar someone’s memory about this man,” Redgrave stated. “Forensic art is also very helpful in forensic genealogy cases because having a good depiction of an unidentified individual can be a good clue to researchers.”

Donations to the Southeast Missouri State University Anthropology’s efforts to investigate this case can be made here.

About Othram Inc.:

Othram is the world’s first private DNA laboratory built specifically to apply the power of modern parallel sequencing to forensic evidence.

RAFAEL’s Drone Dome intercepts multiple maneuvering targets with LASER technology

 

DRONE DOME SYSTEM

The system achieved 100% success in all test scenarios

TEL AVIV, February 12, 2020 – In a recent demo conducted in Israel, RAFAEL’s Drone Dome C-UAS system performed interceptions of multiple drones, including maneuvering targets, using its hard-kill LASER BEAM director. The system achieved 100% success in all test scenarios.

The stages of the interceptions included target detection, identification, and interception with a high-power LASER beam.

Drone Dome is an innovative end-to-end C-UAS solution for securing air space from hostile drones. Fully operational and deployed globally, Drone Dome offers a modular and robust infrastructure, comprised of electronic jammers and sensors, allowing effective detection, full identification and neutralization of multiple Micro and Mini UAV threats employing its unique algorithms.

One of Drone Dome’s unique capabilities is integrating laser technology for hard-kill capabilities. When the C4I performs a positive identification, the system allocates the target to the laser effector, which locks and tracks the target and performs hard-kill.

Drone Dome is designed to address threats posed by hostile drones both in military and civilian sites, offering advanced solutions for maneuvering forces and military facilities, critical border protection, as well as civilian targets such as airports, public facilities, or any other sites that might be vulnerable to the increasing threat of both terror and criminal drones. 

Drone Dome is a member of RAFAEL’s family of active air and missile defense technologies, which includes the operational and combat-proven Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and the SPYDER family. All together they make up a suite of multi-layered solutions against a variety of aerial threats.

The Concealable For The New Ruger-57 Pistol

 

 

Galco is excited to announce a Concealable™ belt holster for the new Ruger-57 pistol!

The Concealable holster is one of Galco’s most recognizable and innovative belt holsters – and one of the most comfortable belt holsters you’ll ever wear. Its unique “forward molded” two-piece construction is contoured on the body side to the natural curve of the human hip, keeping all the molding on the front of the holster. This makes for significantly more comfortable carry and a narrower, easier-to-conceal profile than an ordinary pancake-type holster.

Constructed of the top 2% of premium steerhide available in America, the Concealable is hand-molded by our experienced craftsmen to fit specific handguns. This gives it excellent retention properties along with a beautiful appearance.

But beauty is only skin-deep, especially in a holster designed for concealment. The professional-grade Concealable also features an open top with firing grip accessibility for speed – and time is always in short supply in defensive situations.

The Concealable’s covered trigger ensures safe carry. Meanwhile, its double-stitched seams enhance durability, making the Concealable one of the longest-lasting holsters money can buy.

Lastly, the Concealable’s two belt slots fit belts up to 1 ½” wide, so it blends perfectly with current clothing styles. And blending in is the name of the game when we’re talking about concealed carry!

Available in black or havana brown, the Concealable retails for $131.

Galco International, LTD is the designer and manufacturer of the Galco holster brand, the premier American-made line of superb-quality holsters, belts and accessories. Encompassing law enforcement, military, defensive and sporting use, the Galco brand utilizes leather, nylon, injection-molded plastic and Kydex® to meet the demands of today’s consumers. The award-winning Matrix™ line of holsters and accessories, women’s holster handbags, tactical slings and hunting accessories round out the line. All Galco products are proudly made in the USA since 1969.

LEICA RANGEMASTER CRF 3500.COM

 

12f2aa0dc0

 

Highest performance meets intuitive control

With the new Leica Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM, Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar, Germany) presents a rangefinder with unparalleled performance up to 3,500 yards (3,200 meters). The Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM is also the first model to feature a powerful class 3R laser. In combination with the specially designed Leica Hunting App and integrated Bluetooth connection, the new Leica Rangemaster offers superior rangefinding and precision as well as intuitive operation.

Long-range shooters can connect the Leica Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM to the “Kestrel Elite” weather meter via Bluetooth, to take wind direction and speed into account when calculating ballistics data. The correction values calculated by the “Kestrel Elite” are sent directly to the Rangemaster. The output values are precisely calculated using “Applied Ballistics” software integrated in the Kestrel. In addition, the information can be transferred to the Apple Watch.

“The unique combination of outstanding optics, state-of-the-art measurement and laser technology, and extensive ballistic functionality in a compact, rugged design makes the Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM the most versatile rangefinder in its class. Thanks to its power reserves, the class 3R laser guarantees long-distance rangefinding and precise measurement results even in poor weather conditions,” says Julian Burczyk, Product Manager Leica Rangefinding.

With the Leica Hunting App, developed by Leica especially for the latest generation of rangefinders, individual ballistics settings can be configured conveniently on the smartphone. The app, available free of charge for iOS and Android, lets users select the appropriate calibration for their rifle. Leica’s own ballistics program ABC calculates the individual ballistic output values based on caliber, bullet type, trajectory and weight.

This data is transmitted via Bluetooth to the CRF 3500.COM, which calculates the exact ballistic distance and the breakpoint correction. In calculating the distance, the Rangemaster adjusts for temperature, air pressure and angle. Within fractions of a second, either the linear, equivalent horizontal range (EHR), the holdover, or the number of clicks are calculated and displayed on the riflescope.

Users can create individual ballistics profiles quickly and conveniently via the Leica Hunting App and access their personal settings at any time. Since all ballistics profiles are stored securely and directly in the app, no Internet connection is required for transmission. This guarantees use even in areas where there is no network coverage.

The new Leica Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM offers a generous field of view that allows the target to be detected especially quickly at great distances. Outstanding Leica optics ensure a brilliant, clear, highly detailed image – even at dusk.

The high-quality LED display is equipped with automatic brightness control and adapts to the environment without obscuring the target. The ultra-fast scan mode captures the surroundings every 0.3 seconds and displays decimal values up to a distance of 200 yards (180 meters) – for a precise, safe shot at any distance.

The benefits at a glance:
• 3R laser technology for especially powerful, reliable performance up to 3,500 yds (3,200 m)
• Outstanding optics with 7x zoom for highly detailed observations
• Very user-friendly, thanks to the Leica Hunting App
• Import ballistics data directly from the app
• Connects to the Kestrel Elite and the Apple Watch
• Weatherproof, rugged and compact design

The Leica Rangemaster CRF 3500.COM will be available from January 2020 in Leica Stores and in specialist shops for €1,199,00 (recommended retail price).

HENSOLDT and MyDefence receive order for a mobile integrated counter-UAS system by a Southeast Asian customer related to homeland security

 

Singapore, 11 February 2020 – At Singapore Air Show, HENSOLDT and MyDefence announced their cooperation on a delivery of a counter-UAS system for an unnamed Southeast Asian customer. The system will be integrated into anti-drone vehicles to monitor the challenging airspace of urban environments. The order marks another chapter in the success story of HENSOLDT’s modular counter-UAS system Xpeller and MyDefence’ robust RF-sensors and C2-system.

“Drones are becoming smaller and smaller. In an urban environment, where potential targets are grouped closely together, monitoring the airspace to detect unmanned threats and take action is a crucial and challenging task,” explains Markus Wolf, Head of Sales and Business Development at HENSOLDT Ventures. “Our modular approach enables us to easily join forces with partners like MyDefence to offer the customer a perfectly tailored solution for his needs.”

The system for the civilian customer consists of one unit of HENSOLDT’s Spexer 360 radar. MyDefence from Denmark adds their networked Watchdog 200 Direction Finding radio frequency drone detector (WD200) as well as the command and control alarm system. The system will be used in an urban environment, a new challenge for the counter-UAS solution. The counter-UAS suite allows the user to see a threat detected by the system on a map with an overlay of chosen zones. An alarm is instantly displayed on the server screen.

“Since 2014 we have worked extensively to mature our RF sensing capabilities to detect, classify and locate drones in urban environments, where the wireless spectrum is heavily congested from various types of wireless signals,” says Dan Hermansen, CEO at MyDefence. “Through our cooperation with prisons, stadiums and police forces we have created a best-in-class solution that works as stand-alone as well as in larger solutions like Xpeller”.

HENSOLDT’s modular Xpeller system proved its performance several times in 2019, monitoringthe G7 Summit in Biarritz, protecting Paris Air Show in Le Bourget and securing the French national parade on the 14th of July in Paris. MyDefence’ RF sensors have been in operational use since 2015 for military and civilian customers, and in largest numbers it has protected soldiers in the US Army at both rural and urban conflict areas.

About MyDefence Communication

MyDefence was founded by military officers with insight into military operations and advanced radio technology. We are specialized in developing, producing and selling anti-drone products for detection, tracking and jamming of Unmanned Aerial Systems to mitigate the threat of malicious drones.

Shot Show 2020: Team SIG Captain Max Michel Exercises SIG’s CROSS Bolt Action Rifle

SIG describes the company’s first bolt rifle as “featuring the characteristics of a hunting rifle, with the accuracy of a precision rifle.”

The CROSS Precision Bolt-Action Hunting Rifle is a lightweight precision rifle with a push button, foldable SIG precision stock, a one-piece aluminum receiver that eliminates the need for bedding the action, and AI magazines for creating the most accurate precision hunting platform. The CROSS features a stainless-steel rifled barrel with a free-float M-LOK handguard, a 2-stage match-grade trigger externally adjustable from 2.5 – 4 lbs., ambi-safety, a three-lug bolt design with a 60-degree throw and interchangeable bolt handle. The precision stock is spring-loaded for one handed operation and can be fully adjusted in the field for length of pull and comb height with no tools. The rifle has a full-length replaceable picatinny rail that allows for direct optics mounts, 20 MOA, and O MOA. The CROSS is available in 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 WIN, and the soon-to-be-released 277 SIG Fury

065_edited067_edited

I had the opportunity to send a few rounds down range and was completely impressed with SIG’s CROSS, it deserves your serious consideration. The CROSS is built around the AR architecture which contributes to its modularity and ease of use.

RAFAEL Unveils: MicroLite

 

MicroLite (2)

Compact, lightweight Airborne EO/IR system for Wide-Area Persistent Surveillance

The new system will be displayed at the Singapore Air show on the Aeronautics Orbiter-4 UAV at RAFAEL’s booth

TEL AVIV, February 10, 2020 – RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. unveils MicroLite – a lightweight, EO/IR sensor for airborne Wide-Area Persistent Surveillance missions.

MicroLite joins RAFAEL’s family of advanced aerial electro-optical systems that includes the Litening advanced targeting pod, of which over 1700 Systems have been operationally fielded world-wide, the RecceLite real-time Digital ISR pod, the Toplite EO/IR System, and more.

By simultaneous scanning with a high-resolution MWIR and Visual HD color sensors, MicroLite enables 24/7 Wide-Area Persistent Surveillance. In addition, MicroLite may be equipped with a LASER designator for sensor-to-shooter loop closure. Certain ground-breaking technologies have been developed and integrated into MicroLite to enable these capabilities in a miniaturized form-factor.

MicroLite applies a gimballed-turret design, which enables horizon-to-horizon field of regard. The system also includes an onboard data processing and storage unit for real-time advanced image processing. An advanced suite of cyber defenses is applied.

By continuously monitoring a large area, MicroLite creates a wide footprint, by which the entire area is continuously revisited at a very high rate, enabling simultaneous high-resolution tracking and investigation of multiple targets, including small targets. All video products and analytics are geographically anchored and simultaneously disseminated to multiple clients.

First of its kind, RAFAEL’s MicroLite has been integrated onto the Orbiter-4 UAV by Aeronautics, to begin flight tests. This is the first example of the tight synergy created by a RAFAEL product and an Aeronautics platform, after RAFAEL acquired Aeronautics last year. RAFAEL will present MicroLite at the Singapore Air Show at RAFAEL’s booth.

First-Ever Police Shooting Captured by Viridian® Gun Camera

FIRST-EVER POLICE SHOOTING CAPTURED BY VIRIDIAN® GUN CAMERA

FACT Duty captures OIS

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – February 7, 2020 – The FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC) from Viridian Weapon Technologies made history in 2019 as it recorded an officer-involved shooting (OIS) in Texas. This is the first OIS in the world captured by a gun camera, and Viridian representatives have been informed that the gun camera footage will be one of the key pieces of evidence in a trial scheduled for next week.
“Body cameras can be obscured during confrontations, and we often hear of officers failing to activate these body-worn devices,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “However, an officer’s gun is out front where it is less likely to be blocked, making the Viridian WMC an ideal alternative or supplement to traditional bodycams. During this recent shooting, the gun cam automatically activated when the weapon was drawn from its holster, and HD footage was captured of the entire incident. This is the first real-world officer-involved shooting captured by the WMC.”
Viridian’s WMC has rapidly become a vital tool for law enforcement. This advanced device provides an unobstructed view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for this purpose.
The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.
More information on FACT Duty WMCs can be found at
ViridianWeaponTech.com/FACT-Duty-Learn-More.

About Viridian Weapon Technologies
Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Viridian Weapon Technologies is devoted to applying cutting-edge technology to design compact, powerful self-defense products for the civilian, military and law enforcement markets. Viridian is the leader in weapon-mounted technology and responsible for a number of firearm innovations including green and red

MasterPiece Arms (MPA) Introduces the MPA Matrix Rifle

Based on the revolutionary MPA Matrix Chassis, the MPA Matrix Rifle is now available in a wide variety of calibers, actions, and other customized configurations.

Photograph courtesy of Team POI.

Comer, Ga. (February 2020)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, introduces its newest rifle addition: the MPA Matrix Rifle. This rifle uses the recently released MPA Matrix Chassis and is available in a wide variety of calibers, actions, and other customized configurations. The Matrix Chassis provides a multitude of configurations in grips, thumb rests and trigger finger support options. The primary interface between the shooter and the rifle (the grip) has over 100 different variations.

Finished rifle weight will vary depending on the customer’s selected barrel length and profile. The MPA Matrix Rifle serves a variety of applications including PRS/NRL, F-Class Open and other long-range precision applications. MPA can fine-tune the build to the user’s specific needs. From caliber selection, barrel length, contour, twist rate, and chassis finishing, MPA can design a rifle to meet any competitor’s long-range precision application.

MPA has developed a hand measurement chart for the MPA Matrix Chassis to help identify which grip configuration may work best for each individual shooter. Additionally, the location of the shooter’s hand, closer to the bore of the rifle, provides even more variation in how the shooter can set up the rifle. The MPA Matrix Chassis features five different grip options (three swept and two vertical), three different thumb rest designs and four different trigger finger supports options. It also has M-LOK slots along the side of the chassis forend and barricade stop holes along the bottom of the forend. The forend of the chassis is the same length as the MPA ESR Chassis, making it two inches longer than the standard BA or BA Competition Chassis.

The MPA Matrix Chassis is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The chassis also includes a built-in inclinometer, thumb notch, night vision bridge, and V4 spigot mount. It is compatible with the R.A.T. system and user locatable barricade stop system. The MPA produced buttstock comes with an adjustable cheek riser and length of pull. The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel if desired. The rifle also features an MPA DN3 Premium Muzzle Brake and comes with a 10 round AICS compatible magazine.

The MPA Matrix Rifle includes a precision gun drilled, reamed and honed Spencer/MPA 416RQ Stainless Steel Hand Lapped Barrel. The barrel is pull button rifled and the chamber is indicated within 0.0001” or less to the bore of the rifle.

The Federal Premium Black Cloud TSS Product Lineup Increases with a 20-Gauge Option

ANOKA, Minnesota – February 6, 2020 – Federal Premium Black Cloud, the deadliest load in waterfowl hunting, continues to add new options with its 2020 release of 20-gauge Black Cloud TSS.
“The new Black Cloud TSS carries on a lethal legacy, blending proven FLITESTOPPER Steel pellets and 18 g/cc Tungsten Super Shot,” said Federal Shotshell Product Manager Dan Compton. “New for 2020, waterfowl hunters can get that same performance in a new 20-gauge load that blends No. 3 FLITESTOPPER Steel with No. 9 TSS.”
The new Black Cloud TSS recipe blends 60 percent HEAVYWEIGHT TSS pellets (instead of the traditional steel) and 40 percent FLITESTOPPER steel. These high-end loads feature No. 7 or No. 9 TSS mixed with BB or No. 3 FLITESTOPPER steel. The loads also feature Federal’s lead-free Catalyst primers and clean, fast-burning propellant. The FLITECONTROL FLEX wad provides the most consistent patterns in all types and port-styles of chokes. The new Black Cloud TSS extends effective range past 50 yards.
Federal Premium Black Cloud has reigned as waterfowl hunting’s deadliest load for a decade. During that time, its FLITECONTROL wad and famous FLITESTOPPER pellets have earned a reputation for reliably delivering downrange devastation in any situation. But, Federal’s team of engineers did not let the product line rest. They continue to improve the list of options and the loads’ recipes. During the past few years, the team improved the product, upgrading many of its components and introducing the FLITECONTROL FLEX wad that performs great with any style of choke. Black Cloud’s lethal configuration is better than ever, offering sizeable gains in pattern density and killing power while slashing variations in velocity and reducing barrel residue.
The industry continues to honor Black Cloud for its time-tested innovation and performance. Field & Stream magazine recently recognized this Black Cloud TSS load with an Editors’ Choice honor for Best-of-the-Best in ammunition, as part of the magazine’s Field Test Buyer’s Guide in the December 2019 – January 2020 issue.
“With No. 9 Tungsten Super Shot blended with FLITESTOPPER steel, Black Cloud TSS delivers forgiving patterns and long-range thump unlike any duck load I’ve ever tried,” stated Hunting Editor Will Brantley in the article.
TSS is a metal alloy comprised primarily of tungsten. It has a density of 18 grams per cubic centimeter and is harder than steel. TSS is more than double the density of steel and 50 percent denser than lead. The increased density retains velocity and penetrates deep. Hardness also prevents pellet deformation, which improves pattern efficiency and penetration. Because of its increased density, you can use a smaller TSS pellet to deliver the same amount of energy as much larger lead shot or steel shot. This means you can greatly increase the pellet count of a payload by using a smaller shot size. TSS is also certified non-toxic by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, so it can be used for waterfowl hunting.
The new 3-inch, 20-gauge option has a 1-ounce payload No. 3 FS Steel and No. 9 TSS. Two 12-gauge, 3-inch Federal Premium Black Cloud TSS loads are offered. The first load option is 1-¼ ounce BB FS Steel mixed with No. 7 TSS. The second load is 1-¼ ounce No. 3 FS Steel blended with No. 9 TSS. All are available in 10-count boxes.
Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct from Federal. For more information on all products from Federal or to shop online, visit http://www.federalpremium.com.
