HEVI-Shot® is the leader in performance shotshell ammunition. With an incredible line of products that are non-toxic and safe to use on both public and private lands, HEVI-Shot® ammunition offers more knockdown power at extreme ranges, superior pattern density and superior downrange energy.
And there’s big news on the horizon. The end of May, HEVI-Shot’s newest product will be hitting store shelves. In this uneasy and uncertain world, violence has been increasing on a daily basis, causing a true need for people to better protect their homes and families. With HEVI-Duty™ they will have the ability to do just that. This home defense product (retailing for $8.99 per box of 5), is a non-toxic, frangible, low recoil, 12-gauge, 2-3/4” shell available in either #4 buckshot (30 pellet), or #00 buckshot (12 pellet).
But that’s not all that has caused the HEVI-Shot® product line to expand.
When it comes to the waterfowl season, hunters are always looking for the new, best and most reliable ammunition. Like any sport, waterfowling requires specialized skills and equipment. However, the sport doesn’t have to be costly. The type of ammunition waterfowlers select depends on the size of the birds being hunted, weather conditions and the distance at which they will be shot. Clearly, different shot sizes are required for decoying teal than pass shooting geese.
Environ-Metal, Inc. (Makers of HEVI-Shot®), knows all of this and makes sure that their product line covers everything the waterfowler needs. Offering reliable, affordable, and easy to use ammunition. The newest addition to the Speed Ball line makes sure no bird stands a chance. This year they have added a Speed Ball™ 20-gauge, 3” 1 oz, 1400 fps #3 and #5, offering a far greater range than seen before out of your 20 gauge. Using the company’s unique Pattern Density Technology (layering dual density pellets), safe chamber pressures are ensured having the Speed Ball at the base of the shell. These MV2 pellets – the latest copper-clad high density shot being offered by Environ-Metal, Inc. – are finished off with a layer of HEVI-Shot®, providing a consistent shot pattern for the waterfowler. Speed Ball is also offered in 12 gauge 3” 1635 fps sizes BB, 1, 3 and 5; 12 gauge 3-1/2” 1650 fps sizes BB, 1, 3 and 5.
Another new item that has hunters rushing to their dealers is the performance line of HEVI-Shot® Choke Tubes. Manufactured to Environ-Metal’s high standards of exacting specifications, these tubes are created from premium 17-4 stainless steel and are built to handle all lead, non-toxic and steel pellets – providing stellar results from all performance hunting loads.
Not only do the tubes feature internal axial scoring, to dramatically tighten patterns, but these choke tube systems are also optimized for four types of hunting. Designed gun specific and game specific, they have taken the guesswork out of which choke constriction is optimum for your gun. The chokes are available for the following types of hunting; Turkey hunting, where the hunter is looking for extremely tight patterns for ultimate performance at extended range; waterfowl hunting, over decoys when more open patterns are necessary to improve performance; waterfowl hunting for jump shooting and pass shooting, where hunters require tight patterns that give them long range control; and,
coyote hunting, where hunters are looking for those very tight patterns at long ranges.
Developed from the ground-up, the HEVI-Shot® Choke Tube Systems are perfect for all popular turkey and waterfowl shotguns; 12-gauge in eight different configurations for coyote, turkey and waterfowl, as well as 20-gauge in five different configurations for waterfowl and turkey.
With their goal being to improve your hunt and the hunting industry, HEVI-Shot® not only is constantly producing the best in ammunition, but they are also doing great things to support the industry. From volunteering with organizations to help promote youth waterfowl hunts so that the next generation can become excited about the sport; to supporting our nation’s veterans, with memorial hunts and more.
In the end, when it comes to ammunition that consistently allows the hunter to get the job done right, HEVI-Shot® is the only choice. From the great outdoors to solid home protection, HEVI-Shot® is on the ball!
