Detailed Description

BPI Zinc-Plated Steel Shot (10 lbs/bag)


Our Zinc-Plated Steel Shot is unsurpassed in all the industry. It all starts with the highest quality annealed steel balls. The finest steel shot loads can only be made only of premium (dead soft) iron, which is then annealed to assure the softest possible steel pellet. Finally, we polish our shot to perfection and then heavily plate them in soft and protective zinc. The final product rolls out on flat surfaces and demonstrates its near perfect form. The zinc plating is the final touch to create world's finest steel shotshell pellet.

Our shot is produced to a higher standard and that means it will flow more freely through reloaders and pattern better. Better quality steel shot brings more energy to your target, resulting in greater overall lethality. All of our steel shot meets or exceeds all U.S. and European cartridge industry standards for non-toxicity, softness, and quality. Approved by the USFWS for non-toxic use.

#5s Great shot for duck hunting 1/29/2019
I have always used steel number 2s and BBs for hunting ducks and geese. I have reloaded steel shot for more than 40 years... I was going Chukar and Pheasant hunting so I bought some number 6s and loaded them. I was very happy with how they worked. It made me wonder what number 5s would do on ducks and geese. Wow I was amazed. I shot more than 150 ducks this year with the number 5s and almost every one of them dropped stone dead. I also shot 11 geese this year with the number 5s and was happily surprised I had no cripples they also dropped stone dead. The 5s hit hard and the penetration is excellent. Im loading shells that are approx 1600 feet per second and that combined with the number 5s has been great. I will be using them from now on. Great product!!
