To make a performance shotshell at an everyday pricepoint, we start with our premium steel pellets, then use Pattern Density Technology™ to layer in HEVI-Shot® pellets. HEVI-Metal® has a higher proportion of HEVI-Shot® pellets than HEVI-Metal® waterfowl shotshells, so a 1-1⁄4 oz HEVI-Metal® Turkey shell has 263 pellets – about as many as a lead #4 shotshell with nearly 2 oz of shot (273 pellets)! Since the HEVI-Metal® Turkey load will pattern better than the lead load, you are much more likely to get your turkey with this inexpensive shotshell than you are with a traditional lead shotshell at any normal yardage. The maximized pellet count fills in your shot pattern, to help you bag your Tom every time. Because you didn’t come this far to miss!
