Does anyone have any experience with Hevi-13? What is the difference between it and the other Hevi-shot?

It's not the same round. Hevi 13 is produced in high volume now by a ammunition manufacturer. Nitro is not. The reason Nitro ammo is so expensive is it's custom loads built to certain standards. You can go to the Nitro web site for more info. I shoot the Nitro shells in my Remington 870 with a Rhino .660 extended choke and get an unbeleivable pattern. You can go to the Nitro web site for more info on what shells shoot best in your gun and with what choke tube. I hope this helps.

I checked with the company. Hevi-13 is heavier than the regular Hevi-shot. Hevi-shot is loaded to a higher velocity intended for waterfowl. Hevi-13 is intended for turkeys. The theory is lower velocities give more uniform patterns and the heavier shot delivers the same energy down range as the lighter faster loads

Good answer if that was his question. I am not sure what you answered but you did advertise well.

hevi-13 #6 3.5in 2 1/4 oz load with .670 strut stopper extreme choke in my mossy 835 out preformed all other combos i played around with
strut stopper extreme choke will cost around 35-40 bucks (googgle it.)
the hevi 13 shells just under 20 for a box of 5 on midsouthshooters.

then i bought a rhino .680 choke and nitro 501L shells 4Cx5Cx7H after i spent about 350 bucks dollars doing chokeology and shell experiments
should have just bought the rhino and nitro combo in the 1st place,,, but i still learned quite alot with all the combos i shot in my mossy 835 trying to get top performance out of it from off the shelf products.



to each their own and what works for them.

Or, you can try the new Federal HEAVYWEIGHTS which sounds better than any of the above.

Unlike all the other versions of "hevi" shot, this one is much "hevier".

Winchester's Extended Range loads are advertised as having shot 10% heavier than lead. I think the "Hevi-13" loads are 15% heavier than lead. These new Federal HEAVYWEIGHTS are supposed to be 30% heavier than lead!

The New Federal HEAVYWEIGHTS:
