Guys ,
I really need some information to put on my upcoming book . Does anyone here know when copper plated buckshot was first introduced ?
I was born in 1980 and remember seeing Federal copper plated 00 buck in about '89 in Texas gun stores.
Appreciate any help.
Hoss :)

I cannot help you but l can say the following :
1) Federal copper plate SG 12 bore cartridges started getting imported in Bangladesh in 1998.
2) In 1967 , l saw some shot-gun cartridges from Winchester which were called " lullaby " which were advertised on the cartridge box as being " copperized ". However , l only saw them in number 2 shot size .
I hope l was of assistance .
Who ever possesses the answer , l believe ( unless l am very mistaken ) that Federal was the first firm to start selling copper plate SG shot cartridges.

I was shooting copper plated BB's out of my BB gun way back in the 60's. So I am sure that they were available for shotgun shells.

Should be “Luballoy”. A Winchester patent for their shotgun pellets.

Hoss, I would agree with around 1985. I still have a couple rounds of Federal 12 gauge, copper plated and buffered, No. 4 buckshot. Can send a pic when I get home from work travels.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
