Pattern Density Technology™ Improves
Wingshooters’ Knockdown Power
Whether you’re on the heels of a pointer or walking a cornrow with a buddy, the flush of a pheasant takes many hunters by surprise. Wing beats hammer the air as the rooster’s colors of copper, yellow, gold, brown and green blur with the speed of the rising bird. Next to a good lead and a clean follow-through, it’s the knockdown power of your shot shell that’s going to put that bird in your bag.
In today’s modern shot-shell loads, pattern density is more important than ever before. But with limitations on lead shot afield, you can spend a lot of money shooting shell after shell in hopes of finding the right performance and lethal power to make your next pheasant hunt successful … unless you first open a box of HEVI-Metal® Pheasant shotgun shells that take Pattern Density Technology™ a step farther.
Using the technique of layering dual-density pellets, HEVI-Metal® Pheasant shotgun shells hunters have all the knock-down power they need. Significantly higher pellet counts than those found in common lead shells fill in any possible holes in the pattern. Layering lets the high-density pellets outrun the steel pellets for maximum patterning consistency. We use steel No. 4 shot to match the knockdown power of lead No. 5 shot, and steel No. 5 shot to match the knockdown power of lead No. 6 shot.
In other words, the HEVI-Metal® advantage delivers the effective range common in lead loads by combining steel and dual-density pellets. All of the pellets have approximately the same ballistic performance and lethality – there are just many more of them in HEVI-Metal® shells than in any other shells. The high-density pellets weigh less than the steel pellets, but have less wind resistance, so they carry lethal energy out to 40 yards and beyond (for the larger sizes).
For example, a HEVI-Metal® pheasant load — a 2.75-inch, 12-gauge shell loaded with 1 1/8 ounce of powder — is layered with No. 4 steel pellets and HEVI- Shot® No. 6 pellets. All this equals double the knockdown power than a comparable lead No. 5 shotshell and 26 percent more pellets than a steel shotshell with the same effective range.
HEVI-Metal® shotshells are non-toxic, non-lead, and can be used on any upland birds in any hunting area, whether lead is allowed or not. And they are magnetic, so they are easy for your warden to check.
The HEVI-Shot® family of performance shot-shell ammunition and choke tubes is manufactured, marketed and distributed worldwide by Environ-Metal Inc. at its state-of-the-art facility in Sweet Home, Oregon.
