BPI is currently shipping ITX as fast as it can be packaged and their ballistician is hard at work developing hot new data for ITX Shot.
ITX shot is non-toxic and approved by USFWS. Its benefits are increased density, consistently shaped spheres, and lead-like pellet softness. The clincher is that it is more affordable than any other non-toxic alternative. You'll be shooting fewer loads and folding up more birds with increased knock-down power. ITX's superior technology and high density materials make all the difference. Revolutionary binding materials create lead-like pellet softness. Soft pellets are easier on barrels and transmit their retained energy more efficiently into game.
BPI is currently shipping ITX as fast as it can be packaged and their ballistician is hard at work developing hot new data for ITX Shot. The latest brochure has loads from 10 ga. to 28 ga. with velocities up to 1535 f.p.s. High density and spherical shot at high velocities means that you'll be able to reach out farther with tighter patterns and more lethally. A new batch of light field loads for doubles and upland shooting will be available soon. If you've been looking for a non-toxic pellet that is heavy, round and affordable, ITX is the one.
