SWEET HOME, Oregon – More than 20 years ago, HEVI-Shot sought out to make a non-toxic waterfowl shell that outperformed steel. What they produced was ammunition that exceeded expectations by performing even better than lead. HEVI-Shot’s 12 density Tungsten revolutionized waterfowl ammunition. Now hunters can get this legendary product in 25-count boxes to shoot on every hunt, not just the hunt of the lifetime, with the company’s new HEVI-XII tungsten waterfowl loads.

“The great thing about this ammunition is you can shoot three shot sizes smaller than you do with steel ammunition and get the same lethality, because you’re putting more pellets on target,” said Scott Turner, HEVI-Shot’s Product Line Manager. “Not only that, HEVI-XII loads produce twice the downrange energy as steel.”

HEVI-XII outperforms steel in every category. Density: HEVI-XII is 12 g/cc. and 53.8 percent denser than steel. Lethality: Smaller and more dense pellets penetrate deeper. Pattern: More lethal pellets in a tighter pattern. Pack HEVI-XII in and walk out carrying extra weight from harvested game. HEVI-XII delivers more kills, fewer cripples, and better stories. Coming back from the hunt heavier is the end result when hunters choose the outstanding performance of HEVI-Shot.

The new HEVI-XII loads have muzzle velocities between 1,350 and 1,500 feet-per-second (fps) and are available in 12- and 20-gauge with 7/8 ounce, 1 ounce, 1-1/8 ounce, and 1-1/4 ounce loads of 2, 4, or 6 size shot. HEVI-XII shotshells are available in boxes of 25 or cases of 250 rounds.
