    #3.5 Bismuth

    Posted by Dwight Gavlak on Dec 1st 2018

    I loaded #4s over the summer and used them early in the season. Wow what an improvement over steel. The use of leadshot propellants and wads is fantastic. Stuff you can find in gun stores off the shelf. Early October I contacted Roto Metals and asked if they could make Me a #3 shot. They said not a problem. I hung up and called back and asked about a #3.5. Their answer was I think we can do that. Sure enough. To me the #3.5 Bismuth is a compromise that gets you close to both energy and shot count of a #4 lead shot. My first Duck season was the first mandated non toxic shot Waterfowl season. I now know why My Dad was so frustrated that first Opener we used steel shot. So far Bismuth has been like a 10lb hammer. If you want a shot size custom made contact Roto Metal like I did. Fun to see them advertising #3.5 after my custom order in late September early October.
