Hevi-Shot is proud to introduce new Hevi-Hammer Dove loads, featuring pellets that are manufactured using 15-percent high density bismuth (9.64 g/cc) and 85 percent precision steel. That small but mighty leading layer of bismuth over steel delivers nearly 50 percent more downrange energy than pellets consisting of all steel at 40 yards. 

The new Hevi-Hammer loads are superior nontoxic shotshells for areas where lead is prohibited or for the environmentally conscious hunter. The bismuth-enhanced steel loads provide hunters with an option that had more velocity and more power than just standard steel shot yet is the same size as steel respectively. Because Hevi-Hammer pellets feature a layer of 9.6 g/cc bismuth, hunters can generally shoot one shot size smaller than steel for the same lethality, but with a much higher pellet count for increased probability of contact.

“At Hevi-Shot, we have always been about innovation and density. Density is the secret sauce. It leads to tighter patterns, higher speeds, and more downrange devastation,” said Scott Turner, Hevi-Shot’s Product Line Manager. “Our customers spoke up and we listened. They wanted a highly effective product that was non-toxic to use in areas that restrict the use of lead.”

Hevi-Hammer Dove is available in a 3-inch, 12-gauge option with a charge weight of 1 ounce and velocity of 1350 fps, and a 3-inch, 20-gauge option with a charge weight of ¾-ounce and velocity of 1325 fps. Both loads utilize a No. 7 shot size. The shotshells are available in boxes of 25 or cases of 250 rounds. Shot density is 9.6 g/cc layered over steel 7.8 g/cc pellets.
