This shell is loaded with 1-1/4 ounces of #2 bismuth shot. Now, the secret to bismuth’s superior performance is that it’s 22 percent more dense than steel. It’s not quite on par with lead, but when it’s loaded to a cracking muzzle velocity of 1,450 fps it reliably topples ducks whether they’re landing near decoys or flying high overhead. You pay a little more for bismuth, but you see where your money went when formerly unreachable ducks start plummeting!
Bismuth shot is also nice because it doesn’t damage older shotguns, so you’re safe to hunt with your grandfather’s hand-me-down. Hevi-Shot loads their duck-busters with sturdy hulls, all-weather primers, and consistent propellant charges that promote more efficient pattern densities.
