How Good is Bismuth Shot?

With a higher density than steel (9.6 grams per cubic centimeter compared to 7.86 for steel), the bismuth-alloy shot hit harder than steel and was safer in older guns than steel shot. Steel could damage. However, they were expensive and brittle, often breaking when fired or struck bone.

    After my first match I switched to lowest velocity ammo available. This brand still kicks but so much less than other ammo. Save your shoulder and shoot this stuff. BTW: I use a pump action gun so this might not function as well in semi-auto.

    Great slug, low recoil, accurate. No issues out to 100 yards out of my jm pro.

    Spent three months testing slugs and buckshot, sizes #4 #1 and 00 in three different shotguns. A Marlin all steel pump from the early 70\’s, proven, a home defense Rem 870 with which I have a lot of training, and a Browning gas operated Gold 12, my pet of pets. Here are the results of the top two. At 20 yards – Hornady # 4 buckshot, 18 of 24 pellets at 1350 fps in a 6×6\” pattern. Federal reduced recoil, 30 of 34 pellets at 1100 fps in 10×12\” pattern. I will take the Federal because in the dark, sleepy clouded eyes, 2AM, I want the wide pattern. I suspect it will work well enough, tho the HOrnady would be more devastating. This is strictly a home defense choice. The gun used was the Browning Gold with no. 3 Invector choke but the results were just about the same with the 870 and the Marlin, both open slug barrel smooth bores. You pays your money and you takes your choice. Now a word of warning about S&B for sale at loss leader prices, here on Midway, at loss leader prices. I dont see them now, and that is good. Out of the pumps, difficult ejection, sometimes I was required to pound the recoil padded butt down on a picnic table while holding the forearm. Those S&B\’s did not want to come out, and 3 or 4 out of a box, could not be ejected without strenuous efforts that would have made you the big loser in tactical situations. Half the time, I could feel the S&B\’s dragging on the extraction, reluctant but they did come out tho much harder than they should have been. One problem was, upon measuring the unfired rounds I found them to be fractionally longer than other 2&3/4 shells, and fatter at the mouth of the case. I guess that the off size and uneven pressures had a lot to do with it. The stuff was cheap, OK for varmints in the garden or maybe a coyote blind but NOT, repeat NOT reliable.

    excellent shotshells for the money, have had no problems with them, and use them in 3 gun and shotgun competition

    I recently obtained my Class 3 tax stamp for a pistol grip Remington 870 AOW and was looking for defensive ammunition that wouldn\’t break my wrist. This ammunition apparently is reduced velocity (1100 fps) but it has 7 more pellets (34 vs. 27) than a normal velocity (1325 fps) load has. The heavier payload results in at least as much recoil as a regular #4 buck load. By contrast low recoil 00 buck and slug loads are easier to shoot. Probably works fine in a shotgun with a stock, but I\’m not sure the recoil is actually reduced.

    Bought these shotgun shells for my MKA 1919 semiautomatic AR12. They run great with not much recoil. Very accurate on target. Have run about 200 of these and no problems with them at all. Will buy again

  9. Henry (verified owner)

    I took the ammo to the range. Fired perfectly, no jams no miss fires. This ammo is fantastic for practice.

  10. Bryan (verified owner)

    Works perfect in my Mossberg 930 JM Pro for 3 gun competition. Low recoil allows quick transition to targets and has no trouble going out to 50 yards accurately.

    Accurate,Low recoil

    I refitted my Remington 870 Express field gun for home defense and took it to the range today to get the new barrel sighted in. I was dreading having to shoot slugs from it, because of all the times I\’ve heard guys talk about how hard they kick, but the range doesn\’t allow buckshot. An RSO told me about \”low recoil\” shotgun slugs, so I found this product and bought 30 rounds. I shot all 30 rounds in one session, and started wishing I had bought more. These things are fun to shoot, not only because it\’s true they don\’t have much kick (though they still seem to be quite capable of mutilating their target), but also because they fly so consistently. Shooting from a rest, I got 5 or six of them to go through almost the exact same hole. I\’ll be buying more of these, and in larger quantities.

    First off…. the guy that said that these don\’t work past 50 yds either needs a new gun or some classes. I consistently hit targets out to 100 yds with iron sights out of a Benelli Super Nova tactical smooth bore. After my first box of these I won\’t shoot anything else if I have the choice. The recoil is very manageable and like I said above, the accuracy is surprisingly good. If you miss it wasn\’t the ammo.

  14. Ryder (verified owner)

    This performed flawlessly in my Mossberg 930 SPX shotgun. The difference in recoil is very welcome.

  15. Alan (verified owner)

    Recoil was not bad for this slug ammo. I would purchase this brand.
