Kent Brings Out Three New Dove Loads

Dove hunting is a long-standing hunting tradition, especially in the south. Kent®Cartridge has three new loads designed to specifically help dove hunters fill their limits this fall.
Our Diamond Dove™ loads feature heavier payloads and higher velocities than standard dove loads, making them a great choice for fast, high flying birds like White Wing doves, or late season birds. Our Diamond Dove loads use proprietary Diamond Shot® technology with unmatched uniformity for consistently tight patterns. Our Diamond Shot technology results in shot that is harder than standard lead, offering increased down range energy.
Our Steel Dove loads are the only load specifically designed for dove hunters who are required to use non-toxic shot. Available in both 12 and 20 gauge loads, with velocities up to 1400 fps for high performance, Steel Dove loads use specially blended clean burning powders for reduced felt recoil.
The new First Dove loads from Kent Cartridge offer value priced performance for high volume shooting situations. First Dove loads use clean burning powders with quality components to ensure consistent patterns and reliable functioning.
