Baschieri & Pellagri USA at SHOT Show 2023 today announced its new Helice 12-gauge ammo, which, as the name implies, is aimed at competitive shotgunners who love to hammer the hard-to-hit plastic targets found in the helice game.

Helice targets, which are also known as ZZ birds, are said by many competitive shooters to be the hardest of all flying targets to hit. Helice targets are made of plastic—not clay—and dip, dive and move in a manner that mimics unpredictable bird flight.

For the above reason, helice shooters value shot-to-shot consistency, which is where B&P’s new Helice 12-gauge load comes in. Billed as a “triple threat” by the company, this helice load is a combination of “perfect payloads, honed velocities and a wad that delivers undeniable performance” and was designed specifically with the needs of helice shooters in mind. Additionally, it includes Gordon System technology with a unique, shock-absorbing base wad dramatically reduces felt recoil.

Baschieri & Pellagri’s new Helice ammo is available in 12-gauge, 2¾-inch loads with perfectly spherical white lead in shot sizes of No.7½ (1,300 f.p.s.) and No.8 (1,365 f.p.s.). The Helice ammo can be purchased in 10-round boxes with 10 boxes per case.
