Browning Ammunition Expands BPT Shotshell Line

Arnold, Mo. – Browning Ammunition is adding a new shotshell to its BPT Performance Target line in 2017 with a 12-gauge Handicap No. 7½ load made chiefly for trap shooters, as well as dove and quail hunters. The 2¾-inch shell will be loaded with 1-1/8 ounces of shot.

The new shell joins Browning Ammunition’s current target load line-up that includes:

12-gauge, 2¾-inch 1-1/8 oz. 2 ¾ dram Light #8

12-gauge, 2¾-inch, 1-1/8 oz. 3 dram Heavy #7½

12-gauge, 2¾-inch, 1-1/8 oz. 3 ¼ dram Sporting #7½

16-gauge, 2¾-inch, 1 oz. 2 ¾ dram 1165 fps

20-gauge, 2¾-inch, 7/8 oz. 3 dram Sporting #7½

The new BPT Performance Target Handicap No. 7½ will be sold 25 shells to a box.

“The new BPT Performance Target Handicap load is the perfect load for both target and bird hunters looking for more downrange energy for longer shots,” said Ben Frank, Browning Ammunition brand manager.

Browning Ammunition also announces its Spring Savings Rebate on all BPT shotshell target loads. Between March 19, 2017 and June 18, 2017, customers can earn up to $100 back on the purchase of all Browning BPT shotshell target loads. For more information and rebate details, visit
