Copper-Plated Magnum Lead Shot (10 lbs.)
Copper-Plating Note: Pellets may have slightly larger size variation tolerance due to the plating process. Pellet counts per load may differ from those to which American shooters have become accustomed.
Comparing Magnum, Chilled and Plated Lead Shot:
Plated shot is always superior for game loads because of better penetration and energy-transer qualities. Chilled lead shot is slightly softer than magnum lead shot (i.e., shot that has been alloyed with higher concentrations of antimony). Many shotgunners prefer harder magnum shot for its ability to retain a spherical form better. Because chilled lead shot contains lower concentrations of antimony, which is lighter than lead, the resulting chilled shot pellet is slightly denser than magnum shot.
- Magnum is harder and slightly less dense (magnum shot is not as dense or "heavy" as chilled lead shot).
- Chilled is softer and slightly denser (chilled lead shot is slightly softer than magnum shot, but it is denser or "heavier," given the same volume.
- The best combination is a chilled lead core (which maximizes density) with a heavy copper/nickel plating.
Size: #4, 5, 6, and 7-1/2 (NOTE: These are approximate pellet counts and sizes. Actual measurements may vary.)
Specifications: Acceptable industry tolerances apply; expect slight variances in shot counts and diameters due to production differences.
