These shells are no longer being made. Rogers price is very low and you can't beat free shipping. Rogers also has the Federal 3-1/2" Heavyweight #2s on sale with free shipping.
I got the 4 cases of 3" Federal Heavyweight 1-1/4 oz of #2s that I ordered. Federal says that this Heavyweight shot is 35% denser than lead. I removed the #2 Heavyweight shot from 6 boxes of the shells and weighed some of it. Federal Heavyweight shot IS HEAVY! I thought the Remington HD and Hevi-Shot was pretty heavy, the Federal Heavyweight shot is MUCH heavier.
I weighed some lead copper coated # 2s and there was 90 pellets per ounce, the above chart shows lead has 88 pellets per ounce. Remington HD #2s has right at 81 pellets per ounce. The Federal Heavyweight #2s that I weighed had 60 pellets per ounce. I could tell they were much heavier when I put a few of the Heavyweight pellets in my hand.
I am going to reload some 3" 1-1/2 oz #2 Heavyweight loads for coyotes and the 3rd shot on geese.
