Black Cloud Ammo

For the last three seasons I have been using Federal Ammunition's Black Cloud shot shells for hunting waterfowl. Black Cloud uses 40% Federals flight stopper steel and 60% premium steel. It also uses federals flight control wad.

Here is a link to a video that tells about Black Cloud.

I like Black Cloud, I think that it is better than any other non-toxic load I have ever shot. I feel it is worth paying more for it, because I don't cripple as many, or have to shoot them twice just to nock them down. I have folded geese at 75 yards with it.

  1. I'm a little hesitant to try this only because of the cost. But if it has that knockdown power, maybe I'll split a box with my brother. He's talked about trying it, too.

  2. Ya at first I was hesitant to spend the extra money too. I feel it is cheeper in the long run because I do not shoot as many shells, and I recover more birds.

  3. I have used Black Cloud and while it seems to be one of the best Steel loads, I have found that Hevi-shot has a much higher kill ratio. The shot is much denser than steel, or lead. This provides the stoppping power for big honkers and less chance of cripples. Although Hevi-shot is more expensive than Black Cloud. I don't need the second shot, and as I shoot mostly geese, there aren't as many opportunities to even go through a box. You gotta pay to play.

  4. Deer Killer; I never got into the whole waterfowl hunting scene but I have seen alot of hunters buying up the hevi-shot and the stores can't keep the shelves stocked here with it.

  5. Deerslayer, waterfowl to me is a good brake from siting alone in the woods. Waterfowl hunting is a good high action fun with a group.

  6. Deer Killer; Maybe one day you can come down here and we'll give this waterfowling a try Tennessee style.
