HEVI-Hammer loads consist of layered bismuth pellets (15 percent of the payload) over steel pellets (85-percent). Stacked bismuth (15-percent) over steel (85-percent) payloads deliver more clean kills at longer ranges compared to straight steel payloads HEVI-Bismuth pellets deliver 38-percent more lethal yardage over steel with No. 2 and 3 shot and 41-percent more with No. 4. These design elements give hunters more range with added density, tighter patterns, and improved shot strings.
“Go big or go home,” said HEVI-Shot product manager Scott Turner. “We took our top-selling 3-inch loads in our HEVI-Hammer Waterfowl line and stretched them out to have heavier payloads and blistering velocities. The new 3-1/2-inch load is absolutely devastating on snow geese and other high-flying waterfowl targets.”
HEVI-Hammer is alloyed and loaded in Sweet Home, Oregon, U.S.A. It features all-season reliability, improved cold-weather performance, quality components, hotter primer, and clean-burning propellant. It is available in 25-round boxes; MSRP: $43.99.
