Our "ORIGINAL" Bismuth Shot for reloading shotgun shells. This product has been in production since 2017.  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). 

#T ( ~.20"/5.08 mm) 45 Pellets per OZ (Production lead times may vary)

    Roto Metals #4 bismuth shot

    Posted by Upland Drifter on Oct 30th 2023

    I have cut open shells from bismuth ammunition manufacturers and find that Roto Metals shot is the same or better quality than what they offer. I load 1 ounce of Roto metals #4 bismuth with buffer in my 16 gauge at 1450fps. It is a fantastic pheasant load!

    Customer Service

    Posted by Jim on Jan 29th 2020

    I had an issue with an expensive (to me) order, which was my first with Rotometals. The customer service rep and especially Keith were very receptive, empathetic and gracious in resolving the issue. Keith even included a couple extra samples and Rotometals gift items with my next order, which I really appreciate. Rotometals showed that they sincerely respect and value their customers. They are exactly the kind of company I'm happy to support with my business. Thank you!
