Detailed Description

Bismuth Shot  (1.5#)
Improved surface finish and Made in U.S.A.
We've upped the game on bismuth. Our bismuth shot is now tumbled and polished for a superior surface and spherical form.
Softness: Bismuth is the softest metal of all available non-toxic shot types. Bismuth is much softer than any barrel iron and steel shotgun barrels. Therefore it is the non-toxic shot that is easiest on your fine shotguns. Bismuth shot is alloyed with approximately 6% tin in order to maximize bismuth pellet integrity.
Sizes: We now stock sizes for every type of game; from heavy goose loads down to woodcock. (#B, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
Bismuth shot hits like lead shot, but won't harm barrels and chokes, which means that it is ideal for use as a non-toxic shot in fine double-barrel shotguns, smallbore shotguns and any other shotguns with fixed chokes. Care and proper loading techniques must be observed in order to load bismuth shot effectively. Follow BPI load data for your best bismuth performance.
Approximate density is 9.6 grams/cubic centimeter.

Spectacular Performance 1/20/2020
I used a square load of 1 1/4 oz. of #4 Bismuth over 3 dr. of FFg Black Powder through a vintage 1891 Damascus Parker 12 ga. Spectacular results on ducks.

Awesome product! 9/5/2018
I used these in my double barrel percussion 12 GA for early teal #5 - 11 birds with 12 shots so far with no lost birds.
