HEVI-Shot Coverage @ TFB:
The MSRP for the HEVI-Metal Xtreme waterfowl is $59.99 across the board for a 25-count box of either 12 or 20 gauge shells. HEVI-Metal Xtreme is alloyed and loaded in Sweet Home, Oregon for those searching out truly “Made in America” products. All of the specs for these new waterfowl loads can be read below as presented by HEVI-Shot:
SWEET HOME, Oregon – August, 2023 – HEVI-Shot is proud to launch a new product line for waterfowl hunting: HEVI-Shot’s all-new HEVI-Metal Xtreme.
“For 2023, HEVI-Metal Xtreme is our new product that I am most enthusiastic about,” said HEVI-Shot Product Manager Scott Turner. “Our original HEVI-Shot 12g/cc density tungsten shot stacked on top of precision steel pellets certainly makes for a powerful load. That leading layer of 12 g/cc density tungsten hits 53-percent harder than the steel layer.”
“We took our Pattern Density Technology one leap forward by utilizing the venerable FliteControl Flex wad,” continued Turner. “I think the FLIGHTCONTROL FLEX wad is the magic ingredient that makes this load even more impressive. I am extremely confident that any hunter that tries it will agree. Hunters owe it to themselves to give it a shot!
According to HEVI-Shot, their tungsten pellets are 3 shot sizes smaller than traditional steel pellets to ensure the 2 layers of different shot types have similar downrange performance. Also, the FLIGHTCONTROL FLEX wad that they are utilizing has a rear-braking design to improve pattern density/consistency. Also, this ammo can be used with any steel-rated chokes on the market today: ported or non-ported. As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
