Simply put, Diamond Shot® is the best quality lead shot in the world.

Precision Steel

Soft steel shot to CIP regulations from one of the worlds leading manufacturers for exacting standards, consistent in its sphericity and size for outstanding patterns.

Tungsten Matrix Shot

Gamebore's unique lead alternative is manufactured in house and combines powdered tungsten with a polymer binder to produce a precision made shot which has the same density and malleability as lead resulting in as near lead performance as is possible and without any restrictions on choke.

Tungsten Iron Shot

TMX (Tungsten/Iron) is precision manufactured using a Tungsten and Iron alloy which has the benefit of increasing the shot density by 25% compared to steel. This raises downrange striking energy whilst delivering patterns up to 90% at 40 yds.

Bismuth Shot

Bismuth is the closest material to lead in terms of its density and softness making it entirely suitable for using with fibre wads and in any choke. Made here at Gamebore using a unique process to ensure it performs exactly as lead would and it comes with our legendary shot quality as standard. 

Power House Division

Cartridges developed using exclusive components and extensive R&D, ultra high performance loads designed and developed to deliver the ultimate knockdown and velocity even at long range, these represent the pinnacle in performance cartridges for those high, handsome birds.


High Velocity

Cartridges with high velocity ideal for perfomance use and demanding disiplines where targets are at range.



Ultimate Performance

Developed to ensure each component combine to give their maximum potential and deliver results which are greater than the sum of their parts - simply the cutting edge of performance cartridges.

Low Noise

Developed where noise is a factor and needs taking into consideration or for use in a moderated gun, a subsonic cartridge produces a flatter, duller noise as the sound barrier is not exceeded.

Extended Range

Muzzle velocity is only part of the story, downrange energy is key to a cartridges long range effectiveness. These cartridges are designed to deliver unsurpassed performance down range where it matters most giving knockdown performance others simply cannot match.

Moderate Recoil

The recoil is moderate and may be reduced further if a heavier gun or other recoil reducing measures are adopted.

Low Recoil

An ideal cartridge when the shooter needs a cartridge with a soft recoil.
