SWEET HOME, Oregon - October 17, 2023 - HEVI-Shot announces an expansion of its all-new HEVI-Metal Xtreme. The new option is a 12-gauge, Shot Size 2 and BB, 1 1/4-ounce, 3-inch load set at a muzzle velocity of 1,450 feet-per-second (fps). With this newly added load, HEVI-Shot’s HEVI-Metal Xtreme product line now consists of five total options: three 12-gauge and two 20-gauge.

“HEVI-Metal Xtreme in Shot Size 2 and BB targets geese and other larger sized waterfowl,” said HEVI-Shot Product Manager Scott Turner. “This load features our original HEVI-Shot 12g/cc density tungsten shot stacked on top of precision steel pellets. That leading layer of 12 g/cc density tungsten hits 53-percent harder than the steel layer. This combination of shot materials and shot sizes certainly makes for an extremely powerful load, and I am sure diehard hunters will agree.”

HEVI-Shot’s all-new HEVI-Metal Xtreme loads feature a layer of HEVI-Shot’s original 12 g/cc HEVI-XII tungsten pellets (30 percent) stacked over steel pellets (70 percent) in the same shell. The new loads also feature the FLITECONTROL FLEX wad for consistent long-range patterns and is set to a high muzzle velocity.

Two product design elements really make this new product stand out: The dense, 12 g/cc tungsten pellets are three shot sizes smaller than the steel pellets to ensure the two layers of different shot types have similar downrange performance. The FLIGHTCONTROL FLEX wad is a rear-braking wad designed to improve pattern density and consistency. It can be used with any steel-rated choke—ported or non-ported alike.

HEVI-Metal Xtreme is alloyed and loaded in Sweet Home, Oregon, U.S.A. It features all-season reliability, quality components, hotter primer, and clean-burning propellant. It is available in 25-round boxes; MSRP: $59.99.
