Apex Ammunition has announced its Upland Bird TSS shotshells are now shipping. These handloaded, ultra-high-density Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) loads deliver exceptional performance in a non-toxic round. Whether you are hunting grouse or huns out West, quail in the South, or late-season roosters across the Great Plains, Apex TSS is designed to put any upland bird on the ground

“An increasing number of states and public lands are transitioning to non-toxic shotshell requirements, and our Apex Upland loads give bird hunters confidence that they won’t sacrifice performance with an environmentally friendly round,” said Jason Lonsberry, CEO of Apex Ammunition. “TSS simply delivers unrivaled knockdown power due to its density, tight patterning, and retained velocity. This has expanded options for upland hunters, many of whom now use sub-gauge shotgunseven 28 gauge and .410 boreto achieve clean kills on various upland birds from quail to pheasants.”

At 18.1 g/cc density, Apex TSS is denser than Lead (11.34 g/cc), Bismuth (9.8g/cc), Copper (8.8g/cc), or Steel (7.84 g/cc), allowing the use of smaller-sized TSS pellets and more of them per payload. The result? More pellets on target and greater knockdown power at longer ranges.

These handloaded upland shotshells feature clean-burning powder and a one-piece, Tungsten-grade wad system engineered to deliver the tightest pattern possible and maximum barrel protection.

Apex Upland Bird is available in 3-inch 12- and 20-gauge loads. Upland 28-gauge 2 ¾-inch and .410-bore 2 ½ and 3-inch loads are available upon request. For more information on Apex Upland Bird offerings, visit ApexMunition.com/uplandMSRP: $49.99 - $65.99 (per 10 round box)
