The secret to this 12 Gauge shell’s awe-inspiring performance is its #4 shot pellets, which are made of a special blend of tungsten, iron, nickel, and one or two other metals. This proprietary, non-toxic alloy is softer than steel to prevent damage to a shotgun’s barrel and choke, but also significantly denser than lead at 12 g/cc. Such dense pellets resist getting brushed aside by crosswinds and also retain massive energy to kill ducks fast and humanely.
Such technologically advanced shot really shines with a muzzle velocity of 1,500 fps – that ensures it remains overpowering even after it has passed the 40 yard mark. Hevi-Shot’s coated primer and tightly crimped hull keep water from impacting performance, and their fast-burning powder burns evenly to promote a very dense pattern.
