SpheroTungsten Super Max-18 shot is the world's densest shot material. This shot is not plated, but it appears to be because of the smooth finish. Instead, it is finely polished to enhance lubricity and reduce abrasiveness. The result is a rich, fine appearance. Many adjectives can apply to this shot, but we just call it perfect.
This is the densest shot our ballistic lab has ever tested. Super Max-18 shot is manufactured by the world's premier non-toxic shot manufacturer and it is used and tested by the greatest cartridge manufacturers in the U.S. and around the world.
A word about manufacturing integrity:
Many of the off-brand tungsten pellets that you see on the market are made by unknown manufacturers somewhere in Asia. These unknown manufacturers don't specialize in supplying shotshell components and you cannot know for certain what is actually in that shot. You may not even know the density of that shot.
Our SpheroTungsten shot is made by the world's leading manufacturing of non-toxic shot. This is the very same manufacturer that supplies almost all the major U.S. cartridge manufacturers as well as the major manufacturers in Europe. They have a global reputation for excellence. Each production lot is certified to be the finest and most consistent shot on the market. SpheroTungsten technology creates Super Max-18 shot to the maximum density of 18 grams per cubic centimeter. grains. The intellectual property of the manufacturing process of this nearly perfect sphere is protected by a U.S. patent.
SpheroTungsten Super Max-18 shot is presently available in #7 and #9 shot.
