One of the most effective non-toxic upland loads is Hevi-Metal Pheasant. Like Hevi-Metal waterfowl loads, it features a duplex payload of tungsten-based Hevi-Shot pellets stacked atop standard steel pellets. The Hevi-Shot pellets provide long-range lethality, while the steel component fills in gaps and improves pattern density. Using steel shot also reduces the overall cost per shell compared to a 100 percent Hevi-Shot load. The result is tungsten performance at a reasonable price. Hevi-Metal Pheasant is available in both 2 3/4-inch 12- and 20-gauge in shot sizes 4 or 5. The 12-gauge offering pushes its 1 1/8-ounce payload at a speedy 1,500 fps, while the 20-gauge version throws a 7/8-ounce charge at 1,300 fps. Roosters I’ve bagged with Hevi-Metal Pheasant suffered multiple lethal pellet strikes, which is always the best way to prevent wounded runners from escaping.
