Amidst the tactical gear—see Ding Dong breaching tool above—that continues to spread across the SHOT floor like some invasive species, there were still traditional hunting guns and ammunition to be found. In fact, it was heartening to find two new bismuth loads that can keep old guns in the field. Kent has both lowered the price of bismuth and found a supplier that makes large BB, No. 2, and No. 3 pellets, and they are packing it in 25-round boxes for 12-, 16-, 20- and 28-gauges, while Winchester has a 3-inch 12-gauge bismuth Long Beard–style load of No. 5 shot for ducks and turkeys. Also hitting a traditional note, Federal and Rio are both launching (relaunching in Federal’s case) paper loads. Kent has a 2½-inch, ¾-ounce 12-gauge shell that would be perfect for old short-chamber doubles and as practice loads for the recoil averse.
