Hunting waterfowl can be much more complex than people think. While it might look like hunters are just blasting at the sky, a lot of thought and preparation goes into each hunt. Your clothing, shooting position, and choice of firearm are some good examples of what needs to be considered. Depending on your hunt, however, your ammunition can be the most important decision. Shotguns are some of the most versatile guns out there, being able to fire an almost unimaginable number of ammunition types. HEVI-Shot continues to outfit hunters with the right loads for their shotguns. Now, for those hunting waterfowl, comes a new option. These are the new HEVI-Shot HEVI-XII Tungsten Waterfowl Loads.
More than 20 years ago, HEVI-Shot sought out to make a non-toxic waterfowl shell that outperformed steel. What they produced was ammunition that exceeded expectations by performing even better than lead. HEVI-Shot’s 12 density Tungsten revolutionized waterfowl ammunition. Now hunters can get this legendary product in 25-count boxes to shoot on every hunt, not just the hunt of the lifetime, with the company’s new HEVI-XII tungsten waterfowl loads.
