Anyone shot spectra shot?


I saw them the other day. Colored pellets. Look pretty cool but don't really see the point

Pretty sure the point is so that you can tell who killed what duck

Damn that is a genius idea.

I'm not sure if they use plating or just a paint coating, but I know that copper plated BBs penetrate further than regular lead balls. I wonder if that would tear the ducks up.

Is it expensive?

About $23 a box for 3 inch and $28 for 3 1/2
for steel. I watched some videos of them shooting skeet under a black light at night and you can see it in the air. Pretty cool

Just curious...what's the point?

Are just the BB's colored or does it act like a paintball would and color the feathers? If it penetrates then wouldnt you have to clean it in order to tell who shot it? What if you wanted to mount it?

Also if your stopped by game wardens and one "color" is over the limit then you are screwed. Just a thought.

Yea for hunting I don't really see the point unless you pick out all the shot on everyone you clean or something. I don't really care that much. Without it I can at least pretend I hit some of them. The skeet shooting deal did look pretty cool though.

They will probably sell a pile of it during Christmas though. For the hunter who already has everything kinna gift

I could see it working great for skeet. If you're missing your shots, you can see where your BBs are going when you miss. It would be a good training tool.

Every seen two grown men fight over who shot a banded bird? This solves the problem.

re: Anyone shot spectra shot?


A guy gave me some and I threw them away after one of the first went thup when I shot it. No way I'm shooting it. I don't want a game warden finding 7 ducks in the blind with the color pellet I'm shooting.

just tell him you were sharing shells. It would be pretty hard for that to stick in court.
