Im ordering some shells and I see in 12 ga, 1oz, 1200fps and #7.5 shot there is a choice of Gold or Sport.

I really can’t see the difference, anyone help ?

Thanks.

At the very least, the Bornaghi Golds have a higher antimony shot than the Sports. I believe the Golds are 5% where the Sports are 3%. I can't say about the rest of the components.

Has anyone seen manufacturer data or independent analysis that suggests that this shot is 5% antimony? I doubt it.

I have not been able to find anything that says Bornaghi Gold shot is 5% antimony. I’ll admit limited research skills. It would be interesting to see lab’ analysis of a sufficient sample size of this shot to be meaningful. My skepticism is based on a small sample that I had XrF tested that showed <3% antimony, no tin and no arsenic. As blind samples, I also had AA and STS tested as part of the same test ... they were both 5-6% antimony. I want to be clear, the test I had done was on shot limited to one box of shells that may not reflect a more appropriate sample size ... of either BG, AA or STS. This is the basis of my personal curiosity.

The Sport is 3%, The Star (Purple Hulls) is 5% per Bornaghi
The Gold I can’t find right now on their site. I talked to Ables a couple days ago and was told the Stars aren’t going to be offered anymore due to the similarities of the 2 shells. More Gold sales so why offer both if they’re priced closely. He also said the only difference is the gold color shot, same antimony,,,
I ordered 20 flats, I like the shells
