#7 shot is just a tiny bit wider in diameter than the #7.5 that’s so popular for hunting upland game. That helps to make up for steel’s lower density than lead, giving each pellet more momentum and killing energy downrange. Despite steel’s lower density this shell is still loaded with a full 1-1/8 ounces of shot, so it patterns just as tightly as usual. And thanks to its rip-roaring 1,375 fps muzzle velocity, this shell gives steel shot a flat trajectory and energy to spare dozens of yards out. That’s how nontoxic hunting ought to be!
This shell’s wad gives its spherical shot a real advantage when it’s time for tight patterning. Fiocchi’s American-made shell has the tough hull you want while trekking through across mountain, hill and plain, and it’s the right stuff for handloading as well.
