Hevi-Shot Introduces New Hevi-XII Tungsten Waterfowl Loads

posted on July 23, 2021

More than 20 years ago, Hevi-Shot sought out to make a non-toxic waterfowl shell that outperformed steel. What the company 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 the legendary ammo in 25-count boxes to shoot on every hunt, not just the hunt of the lifetime, with the 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 HEVI-Shot Product Line Manager Scott Turner. “Not only that, HEVI-XII loads produce twice the downrange energy as steel.” 

According to the company, HEVI-XII outperforms steel in every category:
 Density: HEVI-XII is 12 g/cc. density, 53.8 percent denser than steel.
• Lethality: Smaller and more dense pellets penetrate deeper.
• Pattern: More lethal pellets in a tighter pattern.

The new HEVI-XII loads have muzzle velocities between 1350 and 1500 fps, and are available in 12- and 20-gauge with ⅞-ounce, 1-ounce, 1⅛-ounce and 1¼-ounce loads of No. 2, No. 4 or No. 6 size shot.

HEVI-XII shotshells are available in boxes of 25 rounds or cases of 250 rounds. For more information, visit hevishot.com.
