This target load is charged up with NobelSport’s high-antimony #9 lead shot. Antimony content does make lead less dense, but in return it hardens it considerably. The pellets won’t get crushed under pressure, which preserves their ability to fly straight and pattern tight. (Softer pellets which can deform as they penetrate muscle tissue don’t offer any advantage when you’re shooting clays anyway.) And because #9 shot is so small, even 3/4 ounces of it contains a whopping 439 pellets.
The Italian shotshell expert carefully pairs their shot with their own components, which they manufacture from raw materials to ensure their consistency. 209 primers tend to reliable ignition, after which fast-burning powder tends to reliable propulsion. NobelSport’s wads enhance pattern density, and their hulls are reloadable!
