|In this photo you can see just how pliable the shot is. This will provide excellent energy
transfer to the quarry and give cleaner quicker kills. Nice Shot is 14~16 Brinell hardness,
most other alloy shot is around 30 Rockwell "C". 30 Rockwell "C" equals 286 Brinell.
Just normal pliers were used on #5 shot.
"Nice Shot" has a slightly higher chamber
pressure than an equal lead load.

|The NICE SHOT Story
Being unsatisfied with current choices of store bought and reloaded shot, came the idea to make a better, more pliable
shot that does not harm shotguns. The result is a non-toxic shot that is as heavy as lead and almost as soft. It is made
to be used as a lead replacement. Loading this shot does not require special wads, unlike other non-toxic options.
The shot has passed every environmental test along the path to final approval.
As of February 27, 2006 the shot was APPROVED by the USFWS!!!!!!!!!!
Patented as of September 28, 2010
|The pictures above show an interesting pattern test. I used a Franchi AL-48 shotgun as my test gun with four
different choke tubes.
The test load is the 12 gauge 2-3/4" 1-1/8 oz load of # 4 shot. At 30 Yards with a 30" circle.
The left is the Improved Cylinder pattern, evenly distributed shot but notice it has only one stray or Flier from the
The second from the left is the Modified choke pattern, not much difference than the I-C choke but it has 2 Fliers.
The third from left, the standard Full choke. Still a decent pattern but notice the increase in the number of Fliers. 10
Fliers in all and the pattern isn't as even as the first two chokes.
The right, Extra-Full choke. The pattern shows an uneven spread about the same as the full choke but not as many
center circle hits and it has 9 Fliers.
This test proves that using larger shot, a less aggressive choke should be used.
Nice Shot is now available at Precision Reloading.
