HEVI-Shot Ammunition announces new waterfowl loads for 2023

HEVI-Shot is proud to announce new waterfowl cargoes for 2023. A completely new product line and several new existing line extensions will be on display at the SHOT 2023 Show (Booth No. 11838), January 17-20 at the Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada. These additions include new offerings on HEVI-Shot’s HEVI-XII, HEVI-Metal Xtreme, HEVI-Bismuth Waterfowl, and HEVI-Hammer Waterfowl.

HEVI-Shot’s new HEVI-Metal Xtreme reload features a layer of HEVI-Shot’s original 12 g/cc HEVI-XII tungsten pellets (30 percent) stacked on top of steel pellets (70 percent) in the same shell . The dense tungsten pellets are three shot sizes smaller than steel pellets to ensure both layers have the same downrange performance. The load features the FLITECONTROL FLEX wad, sourced from HEVI-Shot’s sister brand Federal Ammunition, for consistent long-range patterns and is set up for blistering speeds. These new loads are available in four 12 and 20 gauge options.

HEVI-XII is HEVI-Shot’s original 12-grit tungsten alloy recipe. HEVI-XII pellets hit harder from a longer distance. Its pellet material is 53.8 percent denser than steel, giving it double the lower range energy. Shooters can fire three shot sizes for the same lethality and 28 percent more devastating buckshot on target. Available in a full line of loads, including new #2, #4 and #6 shot size offerings in 12 and 20 gauge.

HEVI-Bismuth Waterfowl loads are safe for modern and classic waterfowl shotguns. Its 9.6 g/cc pellets allow shooters to drop a shot size compared to steel. Now there’s an option for every wing shooter, with offerings from .410 caliber up to 10-gauge, including two new .28-caliber loads.

HEVI-Hammer waterfowl charges consist of layered bismuth pellets (15 percent of the payload) on top of steel pellets. This gives hunters more range with increased density, tighter patterns, and improved shooting sequences. These loads are available in a wide selection of 12 and 20 gauge options, including the new 12 gauge 3 1/2-inch #2, #4, and BB.

SHOT Show 2023 attendees are encouraged to stop by booth #11838 to see first-hand these new products and more. Information about new products and line extensions will be available soon on the HEVI-Shot brand website.
