Madison, N.C. – Remington Nitro Pheasant shotshell loads are the first choice for serious upland hunters. New for 2009, Remington has again tilted the odds in the hunter’s favor with the introduction of Nitro Pheasant high velocity and magnum shotshell loads.

Specifically designed to deliver maximum long range performance, Nitro Pheasant shotshells consist of magnum grade, hard Copper-Lokt® plated shot protected by Remington’s famous Power Piston® wad. Remington Nitro Pheasant loads are easily distinguishable by their unique sparkle hull design, allowing hunters to quickly select them when the situation calls for magnum performance.

Late season pheasant hunting can test the skill, patience and especially the ammunition of the serious upland hunter.
