Baschieri & Pellagri Comes to the US

Baschieri & Pellagri

Itallian shotshell manufacturing company Baschieri & Pellagri is now selling its lines of hunting and competition ammunition in the the United States of America. The company offers a broad range of ammo to address typical hunting needs including steel, lead and alloy shot across numerous gauges. Additionally, Baschieri & Pellagri’s competition ammunition has been used to win Olympic gold medals.

The Baschieri & Pellagri Magnum Steel line is designed for waterfowl hunting: ducks and geese. In this line, there are five different loads: four 12 gauge and a single 20 gauge. The 12 gauge options include 2 3/4″, 3″ and 3 1/2″ shells. Baschieri & Pellagri manufactures these shells specifically for wetland conditions.

Baschieri & Pellagri’s Heavy Dove and Quail line offers tight patterns and low recoil for enjoyable wingshooting. In this line, the company offers 12 gauge, 20 gauge and 410 bore loads. Both the 12 and 20 gauge loads are in 2 3/4″ shells while the 410 is in a 2.5″ shell.

Baschieri & Pellagri also offers its newer line of ammunition, the Sporting Clay Shotshells, to the US market. These 12 gauge shells use the company’s Gordon System cases that are said to reduce recoil by up to 30%. Five different Sporting Clay loads are offered, all in 12 gauge. These cover short, medium and long ranges plus add in steel shot for locations where lead is disallowed.

At the time of this article, the company’s USA website is not yet ready. However, you can see the Italian site here.

    Why can’t they bring us .22 ammo instead?? Oh, the misery continues….

    B&P shells have been available online for years, I used to order direct and then they switched to Aerostar Outdoors (google it and it’s the first result). Cool that they might be a bit cheaper if they’re putting more focus into the USA, though?
