HEVI-Shot® Duck Load Shotshells
Nothing brings out the performance of firearms like HEVI-Shot pellets and now the makers of the revolutionary pellet, ENVIRON-Metal, Inc., are making their own shells that include great features such as weather-resistant crimps! The Duck Load shells allow for 50% more lethal pellets on targets over 40 yards. They have a 15-percent pattern improvement over high-speed steel. If you're shooting to kill, you should shoot the best!

Rated 1 out of 5 by KentuckyWaterfowler Hevi-Shot is for close range work Don't depend on this non-toxic for pass shooting. Does not hold a pattern. The tighter the choke the worse the pattern. Modified starts to dohnut. Has a lot of fliers in my patterning tests. Cylinder and IC seems to have the best pattern, which is about 60" diameter at 40 yards in my shotgun. January 26, 2007
Rated 1 out of 5 by ncduckman Horrible product I shot well before i starting shooting HEVI 3 1/2 but i got them for the long shots and they are by far the worst shells available, i was extremely disapointed to cut them open n find they are packed with more plastic than metal in the shot and i had 5 times more shot on my target and 40 and 50 yards with Federals and Winchesters steel than HEVI.

A:It is on the box, so I would say buy it in a store instead of online.
Details:Just bought a case of Hevi-Shot only to read a review stating that it is less dense than lead (9.7) while Remington's Wingmaster loads are heavier than lead (12.0). Should have bought the Wingmaster loads if that's the case.
A:Hevi-Shot is denser thatn lead. Lead has a density of 10.3 g/cc Hevi-Shot Duck is 12.0 g/ccand Hevi-13 is 13.0 g/cc
A:Its true that at one time, HeviShot Duck was a lighter load, but after 2006 it is the same density as HeviShot Goose- 12gcc, or the same as Wingmaster HD.
A:they are not nearly as dense as wingmaster hd.
A:yes they are slightly ligher. But they are faster and kill just as well. Found the slower heaver shot strung out a bit and made it harder to hit the birds at long range. both are good its what you like that matters. Shoot em I am betting you will find very very little difrence
