Detailed Description

#3 Steel Valu Shot  (20#/bag)     

VALU-SHOT: Surplus components from a major U.S. cartridge manufacturer

Our Valu-Shot is taken from the finished rounds of a major U.S. cartridge manufacturer. These rounds have been broken down into components by another U.S. company. This shot is contained and sorted by size through a demilitarization process.

Packaged in bulk 20-pound bags. This is steel shot that meets or exceeds U.S. industry standards. See the photo above of an actual randon sample.

Variation: Some pellets in this lot are zinc-plated and some are not plated. We've also found a few "Saturn" pellets of the same size (see additional images). All pellets were intended for high-quality steel shot loads. You might also get some pellets of different diameter. Pellets are made only of premium annealed steel iron, which is then polished to assure a soft steel pellet. 


  • Contents: Polished and zinc-plated steel shot. Small percentage of Saturn steel shot.
  • De-Mil materials: This means that these components have been extracted from manufactured cartridges. The company that performs this action advises that imperfections (e.g., slightly mixed but similar shot sizes can slip through the screening process) can and do exist in these components. This is why they are priced very aggressively. Think of it as a "duplex mix," because it can NOT be perfectly sorted after it has been extracted from loaded ammunition.
    *If you require tight specifications, please look at our specific departments for newly-manufactured components or call our sales department.

Shipping Discounts: Take advantage of our powerful outbound shipping discounts - especially at quantities of 200 lbs. and more. Just call our customer service team.

LOAD DATA: The Status of Steel is newly revised with almost 700 loads, from 10ga to .410. BPI's ballistic lab produces more high-performance steel shot data than anybody else on the planet. Period.

Pretty Bad Sorting procedure 5/16/2022
Ordered #3 Steel and expected you know maybe there to be some #2 and #4 that slipped by, but no seems like the majority of the bag I received is anything from BB- #3, I get that its called value shot but you might as well just call it mixed shot because thats alls my bag was, 20lbs of BB, B, #1, #2 and #3 mixed together
