You never know where you’re going to find a new item at the SHOT Show. RF and I were waiting for a lunch appointment when we ran into the guys from Advanced Ballistic Concepts, the people known for their multiple impact bullets. As they were chowing down they let us in on their latest brainstorm, PreSeasoned Duckshot . . .


The big idea is a 12 gauge shot shell loaded with spices and seasoning…along with some flavor-coated #4 and BBB steel shot. That’s right, the shot itself is enrobed in spices so that as soon as your freshly perforated Mallard starts his descent from the skies it will already have started to marinate in cajun flavor from the inside. I popped one in my mouth and it was yummy.


Unless you’re shooting Daffy at Elmer Fudd-like distances, though, the rest of those seasonings packed into the shell aren’t likely to make it as far as your prey. Still, depending on the wind, you’ll be enveloped in a mouth-watering cloud of delicious Acadian aromatics (more varieties to come) right there in your duck blind. That will surely smell a lot better than the other dudes who are sharing it with you, not to mention the wet Labrador retriever.


We’ve got a few rounds that we’ll be sending down to Tyler for some empirical analysis. Stay tuned and stay hungry, my friends.

    • I have this vision of Tyler chowing down on duck.

      He finds a bit that is especially tasty, bites down and promptly needs a dentist for his new cracked tooth…

  1. Still under development: Defense ammo with an embedded capsule of formaldehyde and embalming fluid. Better preservation of evidence and it will save the coroner some work.

  2. OK. This is cooler than sliced bread.
    I know what I’m getting a buddy for his birthday. Friggen cool!

  3. You guys have all the fun.

    Tasting seasoned shotgun shells is honestly something I never imagined I’d read.

  4. Well #4 works for duck, but I imagine the #7 would be for something smaller, lets say dove 🙂 Lemme go get some jalapenos, cheese and bacon.

  5. “That’s right, the shot itself is enrobed in spices”

    I prefer my scattergun shot like I like my women…

    (Occasionally) disrobed…


  6. I have to admit I am going to adapt their idea. Leave the shot out but put the seasonings in and “apply” to the whole chickens before the next family bbq. I thought the beer can up the rear was bad enough for the chicken but now this!

  7. That is hilarious. I’ma file this into the “not sure if this makes us look good or bad” column, haha.

  8. Love it! Next out; Sage, parsley, celery seed, onion powder, salt & pepper….for the next turkey hunt

  9. Someone should invent a seasoned shotgun shell where the seasonings come separate from the shot in something they could call, I dunno, a “shaker” maybe, and you can add them to the duck as you dress and prepare it.

  10. Given how tightly cellulose can be compressed these days, down to a density sufficient to sink almost like a rock, maybe they could use a, say, 5 ton per square inch press and just turn the seasonings into shot . . . .
