A Golden Pheasant label shell has a big trick up its sleeve: nickel-plated shot. The #6 lead shot pellets in this round’s column are fully sleeved in hard, corrosion-resistant nickel, so they’re going to pattern extra efficiently as they avoid deformation during ignition. Tough nickel plating also helps a shot pellet penetrate extra deeply, even if it has to defeat some vegetation before arriving at its target.
Fiocchi’s name gives their country of origin away, but the Italian manufacturer has their own production facility in Ozark, Missouri. That’s where these fine shotshells received their straight-walled plastic tubes, uniform brass-plated heads, and dense-patterning wads. These shells are also loaded to spark up clean while they deliver consistent recoil and spreads. Never leave home without them! (Unless you are not going upland game hunting.)
