Testimonials: HEVI-Shot®


My son was with some friends this weekend shooting shotguns. I have some 3" HEVI-Shot sabot slugs and Tyler took several boxes. The boys set up a paper plate sized piece of styrofoam and ranged it with a rangefinder 3 times. It was 203 yards away. On Tyler's 8th shot, he nailed it. He was shooting a Remington 870 with a single bead on the 28 inch barrel. He aimed about five feet above the target. Anyway, I thought that was a heck of a shot with a heck of a product!

See ya,

Testimonials: HEVI-Shot® Dead Coyote


Dead Coyote, What a great product! Seven shots, four dead coyotes and 3 dead bobcats. Every animal dead in its tracks, no trailing. Thanks.

I want to take a minute to let you know how pleased I am as a first time user of your product. On Sunday morning I had a coyote sneak into my turkey decoy set-up. I put the bead on his nose at 42 yard with 12 gauge 3" #4's. It dropped him dead in his tracks. Two hours later I circled around the gobbler I was working when the coyote came in and coaxed him to 20 yards. Upon impact with the hevi-shot, he dropped dead instantly--no flopping around, etc. The gobbler went 24 lbs. 9 oz, 10" beard, 1" spurs. Your product is everything it is advertised to be. Thank you for helping me make Sunday morning one for the memories!

Last Friday I was hunting the late December goose season in Rochester, MN as I had the previous Friday. The geese during the late season are very wary and the slightest thing wrong with your spread, calling, etc. and the geese will flare before within normal shooting range. A friend suggested "Dead Coyote". I bought a couple boxes for myself and hunting partner. What a day! We were successfully dropping geese at 60-70 yds., 1 shot w/ 3 1/2" 12 gauge T's. Killed everything we shot at, 1 shot, no cripples. Had even the guides inquiring "What the H@#?$ are you shooting? Unbeleivable shots! I am returning this Friday with "Dead Coyote" for myself, guides, and hunting buddies, GREAT STUFF!!!

I just started using "Dead Coyote". Although here in the North East our shots are relatively close I still had little faith in using a shotgun for Coyotes due to the limitation of range. Then I purchased a box of Heavishot and after the first round was fired I was immediately was hooked. Not only am I totally amazed by your fantastic product, but because of it I went out and bought a new shotgun specifically for Coyotes. So the headlines should read-- (HEVISHOT PROMOTES GROWTH IN FIRE ARMS INDUSTRY)


The season is coming to an end for me here in PA due to the heat, vegetation, and bugs but I am excited going into next fall with my new found killer weapon system. Are the cool Dead Coyote item's shown in the email available for purchase? I would be more than proud to show off the colors of this fine product at the local gun and sportsman clubs I belong to. Thank you again for such and wonderful and innovative product.

edwardsmithI had a chance to use the Hevi-shot Blend at a Kansas hunting trip this season when three of my other buddies and I ventured to El Dorado, Kansas. My comments are toward the advertisment about the Hevi-shot Blend being able to reach 70 yards!!! Well, I can not attest to the claim of 70 yards but can claim a 68 yard graveyard dead shot. The impact broke the Hybrid Rio-Eastern's wing bone and leg with impact that I have never witness before. The bird did not flop! Head area was encompassed with numerous shots. What is funny is that I passed up a shot the afternoon before a lot closer and could not believe that I killed this bird at 68 yards. Not that I would take shots at that distance but glad I have the distance if I need. 3 1/2 - 7,6&5 Blend

In 30+ years of turkey hunting I've never utilized a shotshell w/ the effectiveness and devestating results as the Hevi-shot 13,#7"s in both the 3" and 31/2" configurations. Previously I hunted w/ the #6's, and currently back-up the #7 w/ two #6's in the magazine. I've killed 4 turkeys this season and have yet to fire a #6 except at the range. Keep up the good work and would like to see the elevation of velocities to the 1200-1250fps range. Thank-you Craig N Harned



I just wanted to tell you guys that the new Hevi-13 loads are bad to the bone. I have never seen a factory load that would come close to these. Simply the best out there that I have seen. Here's a picture of a target I shot last week with a Hevi-13 3" 2oz #7 load. That's the best that I have seen from only a 2oz load. This target was shot at a tape measured 40yds from tip of choke to target. I cut out a 10" circle from the densest part of pattern. The circle area is my aiming point. I shot this with my 870 Express 3" chamber gun. I was using the factory sight front bead and it was very close to being dead center. This was shot with a MAD Super MAX .675 choke. There were several areas with clumps of overlapping shot. Makes it hard to count, but I did the best I could.

Mr. Petty,

I have yet to meet you, but Chad talks about you all the time, therefore, I feel I already know you. I just wanted to drop an email and thank you for the sponsorship. Your product is unbelievable and I am proud to stand behind the Hevi Shot name. It truly is a remarkable load. Due to me working in the studio producing episodes of The Fowl Life, I haven’t been able to get in the turkey woods like I normally do every spring. Today was the second to the last day of the season and only the fourth and last time I would be able to hunt all year. I would like to quickly tell you about today’s hunt.

I live in Washington State and hunt the Blue Mountains which are located in the southeastern corner of the state. I began my hunt in the dark, taking a gamble and setting up on a bird I new had been in this particular canyon, but I had not seen nor heard in several weeks. As light broke and the woods came alive, I heard a gobble in the distance, then another and another. Then a gobble came from below me about 150 yards away. I quickly set up on a small bench above the canyon and let out a real light yelp. The bird immediately cut me off and I knew I was in business. I sat patiently waiting for him to hit the ground. Five minutes later I yelped with my mouth call, again he answered. We did this several times with me trying to coax him in gently. Finally, I decided I need to get aggressive with him, and it worked. I could hear him gobbling, getting closer and closer. As he gobbled at about 60 yards I raised my gun and waited. My chest was pumping, the moment had arrived that so many turkey hunters live for. Suddenly I saw a bluish/white head pop up. The Rio took several steps and stopped at 40 yards. With a small pile of brush between me and him all I could do was sit there and wait for a shot. He stared at the decoy for what seemed like eternity. Finally, he decided he really didn’t want to be there, he turned around and started to walk away. I quickly saw a window of opportunity, putting a load of Hevi Thirteen in the back of his head. I was shooting a modified choke and the shot was a little over 40 yards. It absolutely crushed him. He wasn’t the biggest boy on the block with a 9 inch and 3 inch double beard and 1 inch spurs, but he allowed me to close my short turkey season feeling good about what I had accomplished in just a few days in the field.

I am so very impressed by your product it is an absolute honor to represent your company.

Thank you so very much for your product and your support!

I witnessed an incredible shot last week in Nebraska. My friend shot a Praire Chicken at measured distance of 93 yards using Heavy Shot 3.5" #2. I couldn't believe it. He is now convinced that I was right, you have to use Heavy shot.


Phil Storsteen


I can't belive in the proformance I get out of your product. I took a double jakes at 68 yards! this past spring and you had thought I hit them in the head with a shovel. I've looked for decals and other products to promote your products. Just seeing if you could send some sticker decals or anything that would help your company be more well know to everyone.


Thank you, for your time and a great product
Lance Houk


I absolulely love your product. On opening day in Arkansas of the 2007 Spring Turkey Season, I took a goobler at 67 yards with 3 1/2" #6's 12ga. He was hung up with hens and standing in the rain, but the hevishot folded him up like he was hit with hammer. No one believed the distance until I my dad told them he seen it happen. Thanks for your great product!


Brandon Keaster


I killed a fall turkey in West Virginia (2005). Three different people stepped the distance. I stepped 63 yards, a friend stepped 65 yards, and my uncle Garrett stepped 68 yards. The terrain is a little difficult to negotiate for an accurate distance measurement, but it was a 60+ yard shot. I sent the load of #2 Hevishot on it's way, and the bird just melted, nary a flop. I have no photo to go with the story, just wanted to share. Went out and bought 3 more boxes of Hevishot #2 12 gauge 3" to last me for a few years. 30 shots should equal 30 turkeys, I figure, if I can get them within about 65-70 yards. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Here it is in full detail, I certainly do not have a carrer as an outdoor writer in my future, but this sounds better than the previous version.


My Dad and I were lucky enough to draw turkey permits for the same hunt period in Michigan this spring.

Our annual ritual is to sight in our guns prior to our hunt, and this year was no different than year past other than the fact that I switched to Hevi Shot this spring.

I chose 3" #5 Hevi Shot, and I also purchased a Cabelas Hevi Shot choke to complete my turkey hunting set up.

This choice was really a no brainer for me because I am a waterfowler by trade and shoot hevi shot exclusively for ducks and geese each fall so I have seen the resulting quick kills on big Canada Geese and large ducks as well.

My Dad was giving me a hard time about shooting the more expensive shells because he refuses to shoot anything but copperplated lead (for turkeys), and was making it a point to explain how the previous spring when he was successful (and I wasn't) that the old lead loads did just fine on his first tom (in alot of years trying).

I explained how Hevi Shot is heavier than lead and hits harder and patterns tighter.

Well, it only took one shot at the patterning board to show him what a pattern Hevi Shot is capable of.

Our chosen area to hunt is several hours drive from home, so regular scouting is tough, but it is an area we have hunted before and the birds seem to roost in the same area each spring so we put an collapsible blind out the evening before our hunt within 150 yards of where we expected the birds to be roosted.

The next morning was chilly and foggy with no wing at all, a great time to be hunting.

The birds were a bit late sounding off on the roost, but when they did it was from all around us, except form the area we expected them to be.

We heard at least 10 different toms letting every hen in the area know where they chose to spend the night. A safe bet is that we heard 100 gobbles from the toms situated around us prior to flydown time. It was a great morning to be outdoors.

My guess is that most of the birds left the roost about 7:15 this particular morning, which is probably 45 minuted later than normal, but the fog kept the in the trees a bit later than usual.

About 7:20 I was making some soft clucks to try and entice a tom our way when the woods near us erupted with several hens flydown cackling and a couple toms gobbling at them within 80 yards of our blind.

Within two minutes we had six hens come out of the woods into the field and right at the decoys
surrounding the blind. They came in and checked out the decoys for a minute or two and continued past the blind out into the open until they were about 40 yards past the blind.

One hen made a couple of clucks and a gobble erupted about 50 yards from us on the field edge, it was a nice longbeard in 3/4 strut letting his ladies know where he was.

He was not going to check out our decoys despite some clucks and purrs from my slate call, the group of hens were keeping his focus.

He made it out into the open and was following the hens at decent pace when he got to about 35 yards from the blind and crossing at a slow walk my Dad decided to take the shot and whiffed on it (lead shot doesn't do too well on turkeys if you don't hit them with it), the bird had no idea where the boom came from and only took a couple steps before Dad shot again and this shot was on the money relieving this longbeard of his future worries. I checked the time on my cellphone, it was 7:26 AM and we had one bird down, one more to go.

As we had heard several other birds gobble several hundred yards out we decided to let my Dads bird lay for a minute to see if another oppurtunity presented itself and I got a shot at a nice tom.

Some soft clucks and yelps every few minutes were getting a response from a bird several hundred yards out but he was not coming any closer to us.

After about an hour of this standstill treament from the far off bird my Dad went out to get his tom and tag it. He stealthily did this to hopefully avoid being seen by any birds and settled back into the
blind. His tom was 21 lbs, 11" beard and 1 1/8" spurs, a respectable bird in anyones book.

We continued to yelp and purr every ten minutes or so and got responses from the same tom the first half an hour or so and then no responses at all after that.

About 9:15 a lone hen wandered in and she stayed with her new buddies, our decoys, for quite a while.

Each time she would give up on her new friends and begin to wander away a few soft clucks would bring her right back to the decoys. You can't beat having a live hen around when you are pursuing a spring gobbler so we did our best to keep her near the blind hoping she would help bring in a tom presenting an oppurtunity for a double on toms in one morning.

She hung around until just after 10:00 and at the point that we realized she had given up on the decoys my Dad asked if I had any days off during the week to hunt if I was unable to tag a bird this day.

I was explaining how busy I had been at work and a weekday hunt was out of the question when I noticed a bird on the edge of the field out of the corner of my eye.

I quickly identified it as a longbeard and moved to get my gun up to the shooting hole in the blind.

This tom was angling away from us and had no interest in our decoys whatsoever, I don't know why this was the case but he was most definitely heading into the woods away from us.

I got my gun out the shooting port and settled the scope on the toms head. He sure looked a lot smaller than the turkey targets we use to pattern our guns and I pulled my head away to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me.

I whispered "he looks a bit far through the scope", dad whispered back "if you're going to shoot, you better do it now because he is not coming any closer".I thought to myself, with Hevi Shot well patterned out of my gun it shouldn't be an issue.

I settled the scope on the toms head again and clicked the safety off, I took a breath and exhaled and settled the crosshairs and pulled the trigger.

He dropped like he was hit with a club, high fives ensued along with a "nice shot" or two.

I unloaded my gun and unzipped the blind and we headed out to take a look at my tom.

While not a huge bird by weight (18 lbs) he had a long beard with a few strands several inches longer than the main portion of the beard and nice well worn spurs (1") and obviously had been around to fool a few hunters in previous seasons.

I got my tag out and maked it accordingly and picked up my bird and turned towards the blind and realized I was not wrong when I said he looked like he was a long ways out.

I pointed out to my Dad how far we were from the blind, and he said "that was a long shot".

We walked back to the blind to get our things together and I kept looking back to see the spot where I had shot the tom and marveling at the distance at which he was cleanly killed by the #5 Hevi Shot.

Upon getting our things together I decided to pace off the shot to get an idea of the actual distance. The tom was standing next to a lone tree and I paced it off from the shooting port that I shot him from and it was an amazing 65 paces. That would be close to a 60 yard shot. I was pretty happy with myself once I realized at what distance Hevi Shot had done its job with complete effectiveness.

My bird was 18 lbs, 1" well worn spurs and his beard measured 14 1/8" including the eight extra long strands. A true longbeard in anyones book.

I am convinced this was the bird that was gobbling a ways off all morning. He couldn't stand waiting for the hen to come to him so he snuck in to investigate. He never made a sound, and just appeared out of nowhere at the field edge. A cagy old bird who probably had seen a few buddies take a load of shot in the head in the past.

I don't believe I would have taken the shot at this tom without having patterned my gun and knowing how it shoots with Hevi Shot and knowing Hevi Shots effectiveness on large waterfowl from my own experience, Hevi Shot is the best!

Well after getting my new shotgun a 3 1/2 Mosburg 935 i need some ammo to create a massive pattern for my lifelong hobby turkey hunting After trying several brands and different loads i ordered some Hevi Shot and was impressed with the pattern i got.


I left Florida on my annual turking hunting trip to my former home in W VA and hit the woods running early Monday Morning As the birds started chirping just after day break I heard five goblers light up on the roost I placed my Difram call in my mouth and cut a little very low and got and instant response from the closest bird I sat very quiet for a few min to let the wild life around me come to life In about 10 min the goblers really started blasting off so i called a little louder and got and instant response the ridge below me exploded with gobbeling the ultimate thrill of a turkey hunter Ten min later i hear another gobler light up and i can tell he is on the ground and a little closer than before So this time i cackel on the mouth call and he goes ballistic doubble and tripple gobbeling.

And as i look in the direction of the ruckuss I see him strutting up the ridge towards me I purr a few times and cluck once and then go into a full cackell this time and cup my hands and hit my thyes several times to memic a hen leaving the roost The woods exploded with gobbeling what a thrill as i watch the bird strutting in my direction i see another one fly down and strutt around the first they squar off with each other and decide to find out who was going to be top bird after flogging each other for a couple of min the second bird glides off the ridge in another dirrection and the first tripple gobbles and really shows his stuff and i hit the call lightly and he goes nuts and then starts to go back and forth across the ridge and i see why there is a fence between us and he is about 45 yards away I hit the call and he answers me every time but wont cross that fence now what do i do i cant move in any closer and cant back out due to the open woods I ease out my range finder and it reads 42 yards to the fence if i can get him to the edge I know this gun and load can do the job now is the time for the test of Hevi Shot !!!!!! He is just on the other side and i want him in perfect position for the shot So i purr lightly and cackel for all i am worth and he takes a couple of steps and goes into a tripple gobbel with neck extended its now or never At the blast he falls face down and doesn't move again i run down the ridge and rip my clothes half off getting over the fence but for no reason he is done and i am a firm beleiver in this product now ( keep it up) 18 lb with a 10 1/2 in beard and 1 in spurs I am 56 years old and that is number 57 with over 9 1/2 in beards to my credit.

Ilove this sport

I just wanted to drop you a line and you can share this with other people if you want. My hunting group consists of my brother, my nephew, and two to three friends. We harvest an average 150+ canada geese a year we all work full time jobs but hunt every day we can. I use a Benilli Super Black EagleII 12 gauge and use an extended range patternmaster choke tube.I have shot both 3 1/2 hevi-shot and hevi-steel and are using hevi-steel predomently. I am dropping greater canada geese from 30 yards to 50 yards with just hevi-steel 2s. I used to use steel BBs and they did alright but not like the hevi-steel 2s. Just two days ago December 27th,2008 I was by myself I put decoys out 30 yards knowing the geese would be at least be 40 yards when they dropped outside of my spread. I had 2 groups of 10-12 birds come in outside of the spread and with hevi-steel 2s killed 2 birds dead at 40+ yards and 1 at 30 yards dead. This was in the morning I went back out the afternoon and same set up had 12,2 number of birds come in. Killing dead three birds at 40-50 yards. The next day I went with a group of guess and all shot at a high flying bird with steel BBs and couldnt bring him down and with one shot killed the bird dead at 40+ yards in the air. They could not believe I shot that goose with a hevi-steel 2. The pattern with the hevi-steel 2s is perfect no holes in the pattern and that is why I will not change. I thought I would just pass this info along to maybe help other hunters.

I bought a box of Hevisteel last year 3.5" 1 3/8 ounce for fun as it was on sale. Well you have a customer for life now! We were out goose hunting this weekend and we needed two more for our limit. Five came in my friend dropped one figuring I would get one too, well I forgot my safety (doh!). Anyways I figured out what happened and I shot at a goose that was 65+ yards out. STONED!!!! Stoned dead it hit the ground and skidding to a stop when I picked him
I paced it off at 110 yards. These shells pattern great to 70 yards for me. Normally I wouldn’t shoot past 40 but it was within the last five minutes of shooting time so I let the goose have it. Just wanted to thank you all for making these shells at an affordable price for a college kid. Feel free to use my comment as a testimony! I can re type it for you as one if you want, but seriously thanks a lot for these shells can't afford true Hevi but these are my ticket to dead geese!!

Thanks again!

Statewide goose opener for Iowa was this weekend (9/27/08) of course I took my Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Last year my bay dog was 6 months old and had a heck of a time retrieving the goose once it got out of the water and gravity took over...this time she was able to bring it in without trouble. Long story short, with my Bushnell range finder and two witness I tooka goose at 60 yards. Why some will ask so long of a shot? Because it was the last bird needed to fill the limit and the mid-morning was upon us. Another reason the long shot...BECAUSE I COULD! Hevi Shot is the best stuff on the market. The mark where the bird fell, (coming in) the retrieve of the Chessie were caught with my camera and I would like to send two photos of my 1 year old Chesapeake Bay bringing in another kill with the help of Hevi Shot.Tell the boys in R&D; AWESOME STUFF!

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your 3 1/2 hevi shot goose shells. for the 2006 hunting season i was able to draw a Utah Swan permit. I live about three and a half hours from where i could hunt them. The first day I tried to fill my tag i used the lower grade 3 1/2 shells and I had no luck. So I bought a box of your shells and with my first shot I got my swan. Thanks for making such a great product

Three seasons ago I was still using steel for geese. I was using a well known brand of high speed steel, too. A buddy and I were hunting the upper Potomac in February and it was wicked wicked cold. Lots of ice, wind, etc. We got into the geese pretty good, but we had several shot failures where we shot geese (note: not shot at, shot) but failed to drop them. We could see the feathers fly off of their breasts but they kept on going and we did not see them drop as we followed them with binocs. After that I switched exclusively to Hevi Shot for geese. Now, if I do my part, the Hevi Shot does its part! If we hit them with Hevi Shot, they go down!

My name is Chad Belding. I am the host of The Fowl Life Television Series which can be seen on several networks in America and Canada. I am writing this in regards to the new Hevi-Metal® duck and goose loads. I have been shooting these loads for the past two seasons as we tested them for Environ-Metal last season. I want it to be known that they are the best hunting loads I have ever shot. I have seen birds do exactly what I want to see them do when our team pulls the trigger. I do not like cripples or winged birds that keep flying. I want it to be known that there are not cripples with Hevi-Metal®. I spent three weeks in Canada with our film crews and hunt team and we hunted every day with Hevi-Metal® and Hevi-Shot. The results were incredible on a daily basis. We harvested big Canadas, lessers, mallards, specks, and snows. Our results were devastating with these new loads and we have the video footage to prove it. Last week, I hunted Northern California with my good buddy Tony Reviglio and we both just kept looking at each other after each go. The big mallards were absolutely folded with every shot. Tony literally told me that he could not believe how well the Hevi-Metal® performed all morning. We have turned a lot of hunters onto this load and they will never go back. We hunt over 125 days every season and I just wanted to let everyone know how I felt about the products that Environ-Metal® is building. I love hunting with this ammunition as it gives our team the confidence that we need to perform day in and day out. Please visit us at www.thefowllife.com to see more photos of hunts with the use of the Hevi-Shot and Hevi-Metal® products.

Darren Bondar with some nice geese taken with HEVI-Metal®!



I bought 6 cases of the stuff from Macks on a leap of faith and I just got back from an Alberta guided 3 day hunt and had very positive killing performance from your 3" 2's for the Mallards and your 3 1/2" BB's and BBB's for the Honkers, Lessers and Specklebellys and a sorry Snowgoose. I dropped a Honker with the 3" 2's at 40 yds+ while shooting ducks. In the pea fields I shot a goose at 10 yds with 3 1/2" BBB's that left quite the pattern (thank goodness we shot the rest of the geese at 25-45 yds). To say the least, I brought box's home with me from this hunt, because I used less shells to crush the birds. I have some really good pics of the hunt with your box's of hevi-metal centered in the pics if you are interested, along with a pic of the well patterned goose carcass. Thanks for the killer product for the price.

Folks- I was Goose hunting with a friend of mine over fallen corn in central Minnesota. With early goose season beginning the first week of September, the geese have been heavily pressured for about 8 weeks now and are weary of any spread. The sun was setting fast and we were nearing the end of regulation hunting when a pair of Greater Canadians flew overhead and past our spread. With a little calling we were able to coax the birds back towards us. While they where hesitant to land in our decoys they did commit to the field...with feet dangling and wings cupped they sailed towards us. When I felt it was now or never, I stepped out of the corn, about 3 yards behind my friend. I fired on the second of the two geese at about 40 yards and the bird crumpled in mid air with my second shot. Despite his best efforts and emptying three rounds into the sky, my friend was unable to bring down the second of the two geese. I was shooting the HEVI-Metal® 3.5" BBB, while my friend was shooting steel 3.5" BB's. Some say the triple B is overkill- but in my opinion you can't over kill something. Dead is dead, and in this case a bird in the bag. My friend looked over to me and the first thing out of his mouth, "that was the HEVI-Metal® wasn't it"? I just nodded and we went and collected our loan trophy. When we got back to the cover of the corn, I handed him three rounds from the HEVI-Metal® box and said- "Let's kill some geese". I have been hesitant to spend the extra money on the HEVI-Metal® versus other none-premium brands all season...that is until this day when I went home with the bird.

Thank you all!

With Classic doubles it is again possible to use the 20 gauge for waterfowl. Canada goose taken with RBL20 at 40yds using #4 2&3/4" Classic Doubles HeviShot. #2 steel will not kill at that range and resulted in my stopping the use of the 20 gauge for waterfowl in the early 1980's.

Testimonials: HEVI-Shot® Pheasant



This years pheasant opener was incredible. I hunted with Hevi Shot Pheasant loads and they performed flawlessly! Each rooster was stopped in midflight like they were hit by a freight train. My hunting partners I brought on the hunt knew about Hevi Shot for turkey. But, they hadn't used it for pheasant. They were amazed at how much knock down power Hevi Shot had for pheasant.

That being said. I don't normally take long shots at pheasant as a rule. But, my hunting partner flushed a rooster and hit it but not solidly (not using Hevi Shot). Since the bird was hit and was on his way fast. I held a bead on him with a lead of about 2 1/2 feet. I shot him and he dropped straight down. It wasn't a spiraling bird hit.. it was a knock down. The amazing thing  was that he was 60 yards away! My hunting partners were hooping and hollering! They couldn't believe their eyes. The energy that Hevi Shot has at extended ranges is awesome! As I mentioned I don't normally take long shots at birds. But, given the situation. It is comforting to know that I can reach out and bring birds down.

I drive a long distance to hunt birds here in Oregon. I too "Didn't come this far to miss!"

Testimonials: HEVI-Shot® SPEED BALL


Today's my 41st birthday and I shot my first duck of the season - a drake wood duck - this morning using a single round of Speed Ball 3s. Great stuff! From what I witnessed, it definately kills better than Blind Side and maybe even better that HEVI-Metal. Appears to perform similar to regular HEVI-Shot, which I'm sure is your intent. 

It actually almost killed the duck TOO dead, as the duck immediately went belly up and didn't move. My young pup had a hard time spotting it at first, but then it finally twitched a wing - just once - but it was enough to catch her attention so she could home in on it. 

Another great load from HEVI-Shot.

We put SPEED BALL BBs to good use this morning. The three on the right are mine - a Cornhusker limit. The one on the left my 75-year father shot. He said the feathers just flew when he
hit it, and were still falling long after the goose had hit the ground - awesome! We about herniated, though, packing 40-plus pounds of goose flesh plus a half-dozen 747 decoys, chairs and guns out. It was a good problem to have! 

I'm a believer - Speed Ball is your best product yet, and that's saying something, because you've had some great products.
