Why use bismuth shotgun cartridges?

Non-toxic bismuth cartridges have become one of the non-lead alternatives available to wildfowlers since the ratification of the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) by the UK Government in 1999. This made it illegal to use lead shot for all wildfowling in England and Wales, and for all shooting on or over wetlands in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

What shot size to use?

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) recommends increasing pellet size by at least one (e.g. UK No.4 instead of UK No.5) to maintain penetration energy levels.

What is Bismuth?

Bismuth is a heavy metal, approximately 86% as dense as lead. Bismuth cartridges are therefore suitable for use in older or Damascus steel barrelled guns.

Bismuth is less toxic than other heavy metals, including lead, and showed no carcinogenic effects in long-term (2 years) tests on animals.
