New ! Bismuth shot for reloading shotgun shells. Our bismuth shot is alloyed with 6% tin to increase pellet integrity. Bismuth is one of the softest of all the non-toxic alternative shot types and that makes it very suitable for old double guns and other shotguns with fixed chokes. 

Roundness- Note unlike lead or steel  Bismuth shot is not round, but will still shoot and pattern excellent! BB's may have small satellites or tails but this actually helps to not generate as much drag in the air similar to a golf ball ie less sticky in the air. 

#BB (.18/4.60mm) 64 pellets per OZ

#B (~.17", 4.5 mm)  68 pellets per OZ   

#0 ( ~.167" , 4.25 mm) 71 Pellets per OZ

    Bismuth Shot Sample Packs

    Posted by John Brazaitis on Oct 11th 2022

    These sample packs are the nuts for the reloader who wants to do some testing and development of non-lead shot loads for hunting. Roto's one pound packages lets you do load development, testing and patterning of different shot sizes at a very reasonable you'll have a few shells left over to try out in actual hunting. For Bismuth shot quality is very good, nicely round and consistent. Additionally being able to custom load with this shot lets us keep hunting with older guns, like my LC Smith Hammer 10 gauge, for which commercially loaded ammunition is just not available.

    #6 bismuth shot

    Works great! Kills just like lead. And for only 12X the price of lead.

    Suspiciously quick shipping! Great shot for waterfowl hunting. Shoots well in my Brown Bess. Note that the product is not perfectly spherical, as already stated in the product’s description. Have no fear though, it does its job all the same. I was pleased that there was a 1 lb. sample size to try it out. Will be buying more of this shot.

    # 5 Bisnuth Shot

    Posted by Burton Dillin on Sep 28th 2021

    Excellent product !! Shot was all round, (no flat spots), loaded well would definitely recommend where non-toxic is required.
