How did BioAmmo achieve this eco-conscious feat? By developing a special, vegetable based material called “biopolymer.” Biopolymer is made primarily out of corn starch – it is still strong enough to endure the heavy pressure of ignition, but it is also fully edible to bacteria, fungi and algae. Leave this shell’s hull and wad wherever they fall and they’ll be slowly converted into eco-friendly mineral salts, water and carbon dioxide. This process is fastest inside a compost heap, although biopolymer will vanish in about two years time when it’s left on top of the ground as well!
This isn’t gimmick ammo. Its other components are high quality, including its consistently hard and spherical #8 shot – a fine selection for hunting dove and other small upland game. BioAmmo’s wad has wide side vents which force it to open up like a flower upon leaving the muzzle, which helps it to make a clean break from its shot column. The wad’s base is additionally hinged, which serves to take some of the jolt out of this hunting shell’s recoil.
BioAmmo shotshells are safe to store in normal climactic conditions for a minimum of five years.
