Hevi-Shot 12 ga. 3 inch 6 shot

Tested

Highlights

We received a bunch of Hevi-Shot ammo and burned most of it during Waterfowl season. My son Chris had one mis-fire with the coyote load at the worst possible time. This was the only dead round we had the entire season. The Waterfowl loads were perfect and as you can see below we had a large variety to choose. Our goal this spring is pattern all loads at the gun club. This exercise will show us as well as you how many pellets are on target at 40 yards. This will give all of us a visual look at the effectiveness and penetration. Check back in the next couple of months for a visual look.

HEVI-Shot® Classic Doubles

HEVI-Shot® Classic Doubles are 26 percent denser than steel but remain soft like lead to
protect your bore. With buffered and nano treated pellets we are able to achieve tighter
shot patterns for better accuracy. When compared to Bismuth Pellets, HEVI-Shot® Classic Doubles are Denser, Stronger, and harder hitting allowing for deeper penetration and a sure knock down shot. Using the latest technology in the Belted Sphere, this allows for maximum pellet mass. HEVI-Shot® Classic Doubles are USFWS Approved Non Toxic Shot. These amazing shells are available in all Waterfowl and Upland Game loads.

"OPTIMIZED FOR YOUR FIXED CHOKES AND FINE CLASSIC DOUBLES!"

Until now, waterfowlers hunting with classic firearms (older fixed-choke and vintage guns) risked barrel damage unless they used soft Bismuth pellets from Bismuth Cartridge Company. Compared to pellets used in Bismuth ammunition, the new pellets in the HEVI-Shot© Classic

Doubles products are:

DENSER - for knockdown power at greater range
STRONGER - to retain pellet shape under set-back ignition forces
SOFTER SURFACE HARDNESS - for greater safety in older firearms
DEEPER PENETRATING - because they don't deform
HIGHER PERFORMANCE - with each shotshell buffered and sealed to ensure World Record patterning and penetration

- 26% DENSER THAN STEEL BUT SOFT LIKE LEAD - DENSER, STRONGER & HARDER HITTING THAN BISMUTH PELLETS - DEEPER PENETRATION - BELTED SPHERE FOR MAXIMUM PELLET MASS - BUFFERED & NIÑO-TREATED PELLETS FOR TIGHT PATTERNS - USFWS - APPROVED NONTOXIC SHOT.

Testing in 12 ga. 1 ¼ oz. 4 shot 3 inch.

Drawback

One dead round of the Coyote load.

Rating

We will wait for pattern results, but for the most part we feel these are great loads.
