Welcome to the

Hevi-Shot Shop

Hevi-Shot was formed by passionate hunters looking for a more effective alternative to steel shot. Lead has been the traditional metal for shot because it is inexpensive, plentiful, and easy to form at low temperatures. When lead shot was banned for waterfowl, steel became the default alternative because it was the next lowest-cost and plentiful. Steel shot, unfortunately, has lower density, thus lower downrange energy. Hunters soon found they were unable to down birds as effectively. Hevi-Shot spent over a year developing a process to form a tungsten-alloy pellet with higher density. Hevi-shot set out to develop a pellet better than steel, they ended up developing a pellet better than lead! MidwayUSA carries a full line of Hevi-Shot Waterfowl ammo, Turkey ammo, Pheasant ammo and Predator Ammo. Every Hevi-Shot customer knows: “I didn’t come this far to miss!”
