BPI steel shot consists of nearly perfect spheres that are polished to exceed industry standards. The result of their demanding criteria is the best pellet you can buy; better patterns and deeper penetration.
BPI polish Their shot and coat it with a rust inhibitor. This yields a better pellet and costs less than expensive plating. Unlike lead shot, plating does not improve the pellet quality or performance; plating is only for extending shelf life and it adds unnecessary cost.
The steel is annealed to the softest standards. Softer steel is easier on your guns and chokes.
All BPI Steel Shot meets or exceeds all industry standards for softness, consistent shape, and overall quality.
