Detailed Description

SpheroBismuth Bismuth Shot .136" (7# bag)
This size is actually a metric #3, or 3.45mm (.136"). This is between a US #3 and #4. You can call it what you want, but we'll just call it the extended-range duck killer.
We take shot quality very seriously. When the world's leading commercial shot manufacturer began talking to us about making a super premium bismuth shot, we listened. Our SpheroBismuth starts with a superior spherical form because it is precision pressure-casted into spheres of uniform size and shape. It is then polished and tin-plated. It is the finest bismuth shot we've ever tested. USFWS-approved non-toxic, beautifully consistent, and dense. It will be drop-dead lethal in your loads.
Overall Pellet 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 shotgun.
Sizes: We stock sizes for a wide range of game; from heavy goose loads down to upland loads.
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.

Best bismuth shot there is 2/3/2022
This is hands down the finest bismuth shot made today. Period. Externally it looks like plated steel shot due to its finish. They are perfectly round, highly polished with no tails or voids common with other bismuth shot, especially in the larger sizes. These come in at about 138 pellets per oz. They are exceptionally tough and even when pushed at high velocity, pellets loss is next to nothing. The brittleness that plagued bismuth previously is now a thing of the past. They pattern excellent and absolutely crush ducks like theres no tomorrow, regardless if its pass shooting small divers at 50 yards or big ducks in the decoys. My go to load was pulled from hodgdon powders site and was 1-1/4 oz in a cheddite 2-3/4 hull, Remington RP12 was and longshot powder going 1450 fps. This combination has the equivalent pattern density of 1-3/8 oz of #2 steel and beats it by range by a good margin as well. BPI has a real winner here and I will definitely be purchasing again in the future.
