Realtree Video on the 3RD Degree 20-Gauge Load

If there's anything that gets a bunch of spring gobbler hunters fired up before the season, and even at camp, it's a discussion of turkey hunting shotgun shells.

I blogged about the new Federal Premium 3RD Degree 20-gauge turkey hunting shotgun shell last month. This spring I'll test it. I also wrote about its 12-gauge option in 2015 and killed an Oklahoma longbeard with the load last April.

Filmed at the NWTF Convention by's Josh Honeycutt, our video explains the new 20-gauge load even more.

Will you use either 3RD Degree shell this season? Why or why not? Please comment below.
