Nickel-Plated Lead Shot (11 lbs.)
Simply stated, this is the world's most effective game shot. Our nickel-plated shot is the real deal - not a "wash" coating. We've been shooting this shot since the mid 1970s. We've run it through our ballistic lab and we've tested it all over the planet in every type of field shooting that you can imagine. Our customers agree.
Design: A hardened lead/antimony alloy core is first copper coated before heavy nickel plating is applied. This thick exterior layer serves as the hardening catalyst for the entire pellet. It provides the essential hardness and reduced friction for maximum penetration capability. The first thing you'll notice about birds hit with nickel-plated lead is the reduction or elimination of feathers in the wound channel. The surface coating of nickel allows these pellets to penetrate straight through tough feathers and deliver lethal energy where it counts most.
Patterning: Fiocchi, the of Golden Pheasant ammunition, has tested nickel-plated lead with numerous guns and choke combinations and found that patterning efficiency is increased on an average by 4%.
Sizing note: Pellets may have a larger size variation tolerance due to metric European sizing and the heavy plating process. Pellet diameters and pellet counts per load will differ from those to which American shooters have become accustomed.
Market lead pricing and the Euro have been in great fluctuation recently. Costs can and do vary depending upon when shipments arrive. Stock up on the sizes you need when we have them in stock because we often run out of the most popular sizes.
