This shot starts with a hardened antimony lead core which is then copper-washed and finished with a heavy plating of nickel. The resulting pellet patterns better and penetrates game like no other shot on the planet. View the actual high-resolution picture of nickel-plated shot in the additional images tab.
Industry experts talk about our nickel-plated lead shot:
"That heavy dove load was unreal. From a full choke I wouldn’t hesitate shooting a turkey in the head at 30-35 yds. The pattern it produced, as well as the performance of the nickel-plated No. 7-1/2, was unreal. Can’t wait to use it afield this fall."
