Hevi-Shot   (2 lbs)

Hevi-Shot is a non-toxic alternative to steel.

History: Hevi-Shot is an approved non-toxic shotshell pellet made from a tungsten alloy, nickel, and iron. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service granted final approval for Hevi-Shot in the Federal Register on January 4, 2001. Hevi-Shot is legal for all waterfowl hunting in all 50 states. Hevi-Shot is made of tungsten alloy, nickel and iron.

Hevi-Shot is very hard and, as steel shot users should already know, harder-than-barrel steel pellets must be contained within a specially manufactured, purpose-built shotcup. BPI loading manuals caution against the possibility of bore and barrel damage. BPI addresses this issue with our proprietary lines of Tuff Premium Field Wads or TPS series of protective wads.

  • Q: What bushings do I use with Hevi-Shot?
  • A: Hevi-Shot is not manufactured by traditional shot making methods. Therefore, Hevi-Shot is not produced in tradtional shot shapes (i.e., spherical and uniform pellets). The varied shapes and sizes of Hevi-Shot makes the use of shot bushings and charge bars almost impossible. In order to assure accurate shot weight in every load, it is recommended that you weigh the shot charge on a reliable digital scale, like the BallistiScale-1500. Although individual Hevi-Shot pellets are not spherical or consistent, they do pattern very well and consistently.

Hevi-Shot is comprised of tungsten alloy (tungsten is an element which is harder than steel/iron), nickel, and iron. Hevi-Shot pellets are very hard and they must be contained within a special non-toxic shotcup, such as BPI's TPS line of wads.
