About HyperSonic Steel

Few things are more challenging than hitting fast moving, high flying waterfowl. To meet this challenge, Remington introduced the fastest velocity, highest downrange pattern energies ever produced in the history of steel waterfowl loads. To put it simply, waterfowl hunters now have the fastest, hardest-hitting, steel shot shell in the world, resulting in shorter leads to help hunters be more successful.

At 1700 fps, HyperSonic Steel is the most innovative and exciting shotshell developed in decades and only Remington harnessed the wad technology to do it.
