First Look: Kent Cartridge Fasteel+ Shotshells

Fasteel+ (1)

Kent Cartridge has introduced Fasteel+, a hard-hitting shotshell line for waterfowlers. Building on the legacy of the Fasteel 2.0 line, Fasteel+ uses two sizes of steel pellets in one shell to deliver dense patterns for on-target lethality.

The layered-shot payload in Fasteel+ consists of a layer of larger Precision-Plated Steel Shot pellets loaded on top of a layer of smaller pellets. Aerodynamic testing shows the smaller shot drafts in the wake of the larger shot, tightening patterns and delivering more energy into the target. Zinc-plated pellets team with nickel-plated heads to resist corrosion and make Fasteel+ a true all-weather performer. Custom-blended powders ensure reliable ignition and velocities, no matter the condition.

“Now hunters can have the best of both worlds, energy from the larger pellets and pattern density from the smaller pellets,” says Jeff Barry, Ken Catridge's vice president of sales and marketing. “Hunters will see a difference in lethality right away, all while maintaining the premium performance and affordable prices Kent Cartridge has long been known for.”

Fasteel+ is shipping to dealers nationwide. Available loads include:

  • 12gauge 3-inch 1-1/4ounce 1,450 fps; SHOT CHOICES: BBs over No. 2; No. 2x4; and No. 4x6
  • 20gauge 3-inch 1 ounce 1,350 fps; SHOT CHOICES: No. 2x4 and No. 4x6

These loads are sold 25 rounds per box, 10 boxes per case. For more information, visit kentcartridge.comMSRP: $30.95-33.95
