Moorpark, CA -( Baschieri & Pellagri (B&P), an Italian-based and globally renown premium ammunition manufacturer introduces its newest line of Sporting Clay Shotshells for competition and sport shooters alike to the U.S. market.

With all components made in house – powder, primer, case and shot – the superior shotshells deliver a hard-hitting reliable pattern and feature the company’s patented Gordon System cases providing 30% less recoil. With more than a century’s worth of experience, the company employs its well-known blend of high quality materials, innovative processes and passionate commitment in creating a line of shotshells that are a joy to shoot.

The B&P Sporting Clay Shotshells are part of the competition line which have been used by Olympians and professional competitive shooters since the 1920s and been the ammo of choice behind 14 Olympic medals, in addition to countless Championship Gold medals.

Five different B&P Sporting Clay 12-gauge shotshell options are available to suit all needs. The Sporting Clay Short Range (28 grams, featuring a 12 mm head brass, and a 9 shot type); Sporting Clay Medium Range (28 grams, featuring a 12 mm head brass, and 8; 8-1/2 shot type); and Sporting Clay Long Range (28 grams, featuring a 12 mm head brass, and a 7-1/2 shot type) all employ the company’s Gordon System which optimizes the combustion of the powder and the performance of the ammunition resulting in lower recoil, a more comfortable shot, less hesitation and a faster second shot – all together allowing the shooter to withstand lengthy shooting sessions.

The B&P Sporting Clay Steel shotshell (26 grams, featuring a 12 mm head brass, and a 8-1/2 shot type) is constructed of steel instead of lead for use where lead shooting is prohibited. Finally, the F2 HV shotshell (28 grams, featuring a 20 mm head brass, and 8-1/2; 7-1/2; 7 shot type) uses F2 powder.

This in combination with selected graphite-coated bronze-colored shot with 5% antimony and a photosensitive wad, enable high initial velocities to be achieved.

About Baschieri & Pellagri (B&P) Ammunition

Baschieri & Pellagri (B&P) Ammunition was founded in 1885 when Settimio Baschieri, a dedicated hunter and Guido Pellagri, a chemistry graduate, first created a smokeless or “white” gunpowder. At the time, only black powder was used which required great amounts of powder and produced large amounts of smoke. Since then, the company has grown to become a premier, worldwide leader and producer and distributor of powders, Gordon System cases, plastic wads and cartridges for smooth bore guns. Through a simple but perfected equation of superior materials, uniquely proprietary practices and the finest, most devoted people, the company has continue to innovate and deliver the best products becoming the first choice for hunters and competitive shooters worldwide.

‘30% less recoil’? Compared to what?


A comparable load with a conventional hull.
The Gordon System hull has a shock absorbing piston between the powder and the case head – much like the modern shot cup has a compressing base to minimize the acceleration spike on the shot – but on the shooter’s side.
