Our "ORIGINAL" Bismuth Shot for reloading shotgun shells.  This product has been in production since 2017.  Available in 1-pound sample bags. This premium line of bismuth shot is alloyed with 6% tin and is rigorously monitored to the highest quality assurance standard possible to increase pellet integrity and your satisfaction.  Bismuth is one of the softest of all the non-toxic alternative shot types, making it very suitable for old double guns and other shotguns with fixed chokes. 

Roundness Note: Unlike lead or steel shot, Rotometals' Bismuth Shot is not perfectly round, but will shoot and pattern excellently! Our BBs may have small satellites and/or tails, but this helps to reduce drag similar to the way a golf ball is designed (i.e. less sticky in the air).

    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

    Posted by Weeks Tim on Jan 30th 2022

    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.
