This shotshell is loaded with steel shot. It’s still plenty effective at shattering clays and anchoring upland birds when it is propelled to a fast muzzle velocity of 1,325 feet per second. But because steel is nontoxic, it won’t sicken and kill any scavengers which like to comb over your range or hunting grounds. Winchester’s Xpert steel shot is also corrosion resistant, so each pellet remains smooth and aerodynamic while it is exposed to humidity.
Steel is quite hard. That means this shell’s #6.5 shot pellets will retain their spherical 0.105” diameter profiles while they are subjected to intense pressure, so you can enjoy consistently tight patterns. But thanks to this shell’s thick wad, such hard shot pellets simply cannot access and scrape your shotgun’s bore. The wad’s cushioned base serves well to mitigate felt recoil, so you can easily work through this entire case of ammo without receiving a sore shoulder for your efforts. This American-made ammo is also reloadable!
