Tungsten Shot for Hunting

Tungsten Shot for Hunting

Spring gobbler hunters always seem to be tweaking something, whether it’s their various call lineup, to camo patterns and, especially, shotgun loads to deliver the best pattern possible when the moment of truth arrives.
 
In recent years technology has taken shotgun loads and choke tubes to the next level, and longbeard chasers have literally bought into it and outfitted their shotguns with shotgun shell and choke tube combos that send a swarm of shot downrange toward an unsuspecting gobbler.
 
It’s gotten to the point where you wonder what will be next.
 
Well, wonder no more.
There’s a hardcore fraternity of turkey hunters and reloaders who have taken that next step, hand-loading TSS – Tungsten Super Shot – shotgun shells with incredible results. I’ll stop short of talking about the extended range these loads offer because I’m an old-school – maybe just plain old – turkey hunter who feels it’s a 40-yard game, or should be.
 
But the patterns and power these loads deliver is nothing short or amazing.
 There’s a reason. TSS is the heaviest shot available today, weighing about 18 g/cc. Its hardness requires shotgunners to take extra precautions to ensure it doesn’t damage your gun or choke tube. But if loaded properly, there’s no problem.
 
Hand-loaders and turkey hunters are reporting devastating patterns to 40 yards and, if you insist, well beyond – even from 20 gauges and .410s. Because of its weight, you can use small shot sizes – 9 shot is commonly used – and send a deadly swarm of pellets downrange into that 10-inch circle gobbler getters typically use to gauge their pattern’s effectiveness.
 That’s the good news. The bad news it’s expensive; most estimates from hunters who are loading TSS say over $7 a shell. At that price and given the relatively small market target, it’s highly unlikely you’ll see it on any shelves anytime soon.
 
Too, it could accurately be described as overkill. Let’s be honest: lead shotgun loads will kill turkeys. And with the variety of Hevi-Shot and other specialized turkey loads available, there are plenty of excellent options available on the market today.
 
But for the guy who wants to kick it up a notch, TSS has a core group of followers.
It’s all part of the advance in technology today, in turkey hunting and virtually everything in society. You don’t have to embrace it all, but it’s available. And some spring gobbler hunters who load their own shells are now dedicated followers of TSS.

Tungsten alloy shot is used as the shot for hunting shells. The pellets spread upon leaving the barrel, and the power of the burning charge is divided among the pellets, which means that the energy of any one ball of shot is fairly low. In a hunting context, the product makes shotguns useful primarily for hunting birds and other small games. Tungsten alloy shot properties: Its benefits come from the fact that it is denser than any other shot material, including lead, steel or bismuth. To understand how the density factors into performance, let’s look at two spheres about the same size, a golf ball and a ping-pong ball. The golf ball is far denser and will fly farther and hit harder. Now reduce that size down to two single pellets, one steel and the other a tungsten alloy. Get the result. The tungsten will fly farther, hit harder and penetrate deeper. That means more birds, farther out, with fewer cripples. The beauty of tungsten is you also can reduce shot size and retain all the benefits of the larger lead or steel, with a lot more shot in the pattern. If you normally use No. 4 shot, switch to No. 6 in a tungsten load for a bigger pattern, more range and more forgiveness. We can manhandle lead and, to a lesser degree, steel, by simply forcing it through varying choke restrictions until we get it to behave the way we want it to. Not so with tungsten. Tungsten has a mind of its own and doesn’t play by the rules when it comes to choke. For most tungsten loads have been tested , a modified choke delivers the overall best results in most guns, including over/unders and semi-autos. There have been rare instances where a full choke showed some improvement over a modified — one 12-gauge Spartan o/u and one Franchi semi-auto. But the densest, most uniform patterns with tungsten most commonly come from modified or improved modified chokes. Tungsten is definitely harder than steel, and as such, there have been a flood of warnings about not shooting it in ultra-high-end guns or through standard chokes. It will leave marks in a choke tube, but as of yet, there are not any adverse effects in a barrel. .The shotguns are tools, not works of art, so a bit of streaking or scratching in the tube doesn’t bother you. If you have concerns, just switch to a hardened choke tube made for tungsten or steel. Tungsten is great stuff, and it will put a lot more birds in the bag, but for now, it is pricey. For the close-timber or flooded-marsh hunter, steel is still the most economical, but for the big Canadas and snows, this stuff drops them with a thud! High density, great hardness and resistance to high temperature make tungsten to be one of the most sought -after material for shot pellets in hunting history. Density of tungsten alloy shot is about 18g/cm³ comparable only to gold, platinum, or bismuth. Another unique property of tungsten heavy alloy is that it is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Therefore, it is safe for people to handle and work with. It is our leading products, we can provide tungsten alloy shot as your requirements.
