The Zenith game shooting cartridge by Eley Hawk features only the very best components available, including premium copper-coated lead shot to deliver superior patterning. This load will deliver the high point to anyone’s shooting day, whatever the quarry.
“Eley Zenith excelled on both the grouse and high pheasants. It was particularly obvious on the long-range birds, which folded convincingly on impact. Carcass inspection has always revealed a clean, quality pattern and a bird fit for the table which is ultimately important. I’ve passed a few boxes of Zenith around for fellow Guns to test them, and the feedback has always been very positive with every one of them asking for more. Zenith is real quality.” ~ Duncan Thomas, BASC.
Why the copper-coated lead shot delivers such stopping power at all ranges is due to copper’s harder compound which reduces pellet deformation as the shot goes down the barrel and through the choke of the gun. This ensures it maintains a superior pattern during flight, resulting in more shot on target and a bigger impact on the quarry ensuring a clean kill.
