85% Steel layered over 15% Bismuth
At HEVI-Shot®, we’ve always been about density. Density is the secret sauce. It leads to tighter patterns, higher speeds and more knockdown power. In short, it increases our chance of success in the field.
Our HEVI-Hammer Upland® has 15% high density bismuth, layered over 85% steel pellets. That small but mighty leading edge of bismuth packs nearly 50% more knockdown power than the steel layer at 40 yards.
With our 9.6 g/cc Bismuth, you can generally shoot one shot size smaller than steel for the same lethality. In our HEVI-Hammer®, both the bismuth and steel are the same size!
HEVI-Hammer® Upland is a superior non-toxic shotshell for areas where lead is prohibited or for environmental conscious hunters. We are offering loads for large, medium, and smaller upland game birds.
