ELEY Bismuth 20 bore – Lead alternative

Eley Hawk’s VIP Bismuth 20 bore cartridge is perfect for all wild fowling and wetland shooting with a 20 bore shotgun, offering almost identical performance qualities to lead. 

This lead alternative works perfectly in all guns proofed to work with lead, and has been proven to be effective in the field since the early 1990`s. The unique formulation of the bismuth alloy has many properties similar to lead in terms of density and hardness. The alloy mix also ensures there is a certain malleability, which in turn transfers energy into the target to deliver good knockdown power. Bismuth has no toxic properties and is very safe to handle.

VIP Bismuth cartridges are an ideal option for mixed-bag pheasant and duck days, all the while using your favourite old English gun. If you only occasionally go wild fowling, they represent a cost-effective solution to investing in a new steel-proofed gun.

“A number of drives produced superlative birds. The bismuth loads killed cleanly and consistently – by mid morning everybody had completely forgotten that they were using a lead alternative.”
