Apex Ammunition: Waterfowl Perfection By: Kat Ainsworth


It’s never too soon to start preparing for waterfowl season, and part of that includes getting the best ammo on hand for the job. Apex Ammunition’s Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend is designed to help you have your greatest waterfowl season yet. Sure, you have to provide the skills to impact targets, but the ammo will do the rest. After all, there’s not much worse than simply wounding a duck rather than dropping it with a single, effective shot.

Apex Ammunition provided the following details for the shotshells:

Available in 3-inch, 12-gauge shells, this handcrafted “duplex load” combines No. 8 TSS with No. 3 S3 zinc-plated steel for a versatile, hard-hitting load whether you are shooting over decoys on opening day or trying to bring down warier, late-season waterfowl.

The zinc coating on the premium grade APEX steel shot ensures uniform pellets for optimum patterning in a steel load and, when combined with 18.1 g/cc TSS, helps deliver a harder hitting payload with improved terminal performance to reduce crippling.

Jason Lonsberry, CEO, APEX Ammunition, summarized the waterfowl-specific ammo:

This load comes in a box featuring the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat camo pattern and offers hunters a new combination of shot sizes with deep penetration and lethal energy transfer.

Chris Paradise, Chief Sales Officer of Mossy Oak, also had a few things to say about the ammunition from Apex:

Mossy Oak is excited to partner with APEX, one of the most reputable ammo manufacturers, to offer waterfowl hunters the Shadow Grass Habitat Waterfowl Blend that brings the best of both worlds for waterfowl ammo into one shell.

Waterfowlers need the most reliable shotshells possible to ensure hunting success. It’s never good to have a wounded bird, so you want ammo capable of killing them quickly and ethically. According to the manufacturer, that’s what this 12 gauge ammo is designed for. These are three inch shotshells with a manufacturer-tested speed of 1400 feet per second. As a duck hunter, you want to do your best to eliminate the chances of crippled birds, and Apex Ammunition claims this is the ammo to do it.
