Before launching Hevi Shot, founders were frustrated by the poor performance of the current loads for waterfowlers. So in late 1999, they launched their own company to produce a new version of waterfowling shots that would be more effective for hunters. They started out in a small rented building in Oregon, but quickly gained national exposure and partnered with Remington Arms. Later in 2005, they took the brand back to a private operation and moved it into the old Oregon facility. Today, Hevi Shot offers a wide range of shotgun shells for hunting. Environ Metal provides affordable steel shot ammunition with high density loads to extend the shooter’s optimum range. The popular Hevi-Steel ammo offers power, speed, and proven results whether you are shooting at a practice target or at your next big kill out in the woods. Hevi-Shoot is a hunter’s favorite and it has repeatedly taken down big game with supreme stopping power.
