All I found on Rogers web-site was Hevi-Shot 20 ga 3" Classic Doubles loads that they advertise as 26% denser than steel shot but it is soft like lead shot.

Since they are advertising it as being soft it maybe Bismuth shot.

The only 20 gauge HW-15 that I saw was the 2 3/4” in 1 ounce of #7’s.

I picked up several hundred rounds of the 3” in 1 1/2 ounce of #6’s in HW-15 a couple seasons ago. Good stuff.

FWIW, IMO am very reticent to buy anything EMI produces given their history.

I have shot and tested some of these classic double loads. It is measures right about 10g/cc density. I shot some of it out of both a 20ga and 28ga. Not nearly as effective as the 12g/cc hevi shot, but they killed ducks, but so does steel.

Those not to bad loads from hevi but might as well load your own bismuth and or buy boss bismuth ...copper coated does make difference with boss loads and improvement coming with gen 3 boss loads of bismuth comming in near future.
