This 28 Gauge shotshell will let you see the brilliant bird up close and personal. It is loaded with #5 shot, which crashes through thick brush and dense plumage quite effectively. Fiocchi’s Golden Pheasant shot is especially fit for its job because it is nickel plated. Not only is such hard shot basically immune to the degree of deformation which loosens pattern density – it is also capable of driving especially deep wound channels into medium-sized upland game to ground it fast and humanely.
This tight patterning, deep penetrating shot performs even more admirably as Fiocchi’s high-density polymer wad pushes it efficiently down the barrel and out of the muzzle. The Italian manufacturer’s primer and propellant both light up with minimal residue deposits, and their hull and brass-plated head enhance functionality in any shotgun. And Fiocchi also makes the shotshells they sell in America right in the heart of Missouri. That’s fitting, because the pheasant hunting in Missouri is phenomenal.
