First Look: Federal Premium Hevi-Bismuth Shotshells
Federal Premium has announced the introduction of its new Hevi-Bismuth shotshells, giving hunters the opportunity to pursue both upland birds and waterfowl with a hard-hitting, lead-free option, and will be available in both 12- and 20-gauge offerings.
Hevi-Bismuth shot gives the confidence of lead performance in a non-lead pellet, boasting a heavy-hitting payload of 9.6g/cc density pellets that is 22 percent denser than steel.
“Hunters wanting a non-lead shotshell option with increased performance will want to add Hevi-Bismuth to their hunting bag or vest this hunting season,” said Dan Compton, Federal’s Shotshell Product Manager. “We sourced the shot from our partners at Hevi-Shot and added Federal’s rear-deploying FliteControl Flex wad for even greater downrange performance.”
The Hevi-Bismuth pellets are not only softer than steel and tungsten, but can safely be used in both modern and classic shotguns.
“Hevi-Bismuth will be a great addition to the already wide range of shotshell products Federal offers,” continued Compton. “With bismuth also being safe to use in classic shotguns, hunters can take their favorite heirloom shotgun back into the field to hunt upland and waterfowl without worrying about damaging their barrels.”
