    We tested both the 3" 4's and 2's. They performed exactly as expected. The 4's will kill ducks as far as any 12ga steel load. 2's tend to cause cripples, on ducks, and need to be used on geese. Pattern is just too thin for ducks. Only disadvantage vs 12ga is a narrower pattern.

    Orange,

    My son is using the Hevi X 3" 4's and absolutely smacking them. I saw him
    shoot a very high Speck with that load and it was graveyard dead when it
    hit the ground. I am a BELIEVER IN HEVISHOT

    This stuff makes the little guns viable again. They perform better than they did with lead.

    Last year it was 10 same as bismuth. This year they say it is heavier, but do not specify. It is about the same as copper plated lead, but patterns hold up better due to no deformation. 4's are the answer in 20ga for ducks. 2's for geese. Comes 25 to a box and well worth the extra cost over hevi metal. Would also be awsome for late season pheasants where non toxic is required. Im done with the 12ga. Its either a 20 or a 10 depending on where and what.
