Lead Replacement Shot

Bismuth & Tin for shotgun cartridges & bullets

Due to new legislation coming into effect in this country on the use of cartridges containing Lead shot for use over wetlands, there has been a move towards shot made from different alloys, one of these alloys is Bismuth / Tin. 
We are able to supply pure Bismuth and Tin in small quantities if required for the manufacture of this type of shot. And also for the manufacture of various types of bullets, which are also affected by the control of Lead in the environment.
