Dispersion Control Technology
For the finest in upland bird hunting, Polywad,
Inc. offers the Spred-R shotshells.
These shells revolutionize shotgun pattern
effectiveness by producing a quick, uniform opening of
the pattern without adversely affecting pellet energy or
downrange pellet count. These dispersion control loads
can be used with any choke from full to skeet, and
depending on the choke used, provide the shooter from
80% to 150% more pattern area than
conventional shotshells fired through the same choke.
These larger patterns solve the problem of close range shooting and increase hits.
Spred-R loads deliver hard hits throughout the pattern
by dispersing the surplus center pellets into a wider
pattern with a strong fringe! This results in less
wounding of birds and cleaner, quicker kills. Spred-R
shells are fantastic for the smaller upland birds such
as Grouse, Quail, Woodcock and Chukar. Spred-R shells
come in 12, 16, 20 and 28 gauges.

When the pellets of a conventional shell leave the
muzzle, an elongated shotstring is created. The leading
pellets are the center of the pattern and the trailing
pellets are the outer circle. Since most of the pellets
are in the center, the outer 1/3rd of the pattern is
composed of sporadic and erratic pellets that are losing
energy. This results in weak hitting pellets with huge
holes in the outer 1/3rd of the pattern! Wounded birds
are the result of these weak fringes.
When SPRED-R pellets leave the muzzle they are
temporarily held to the post-disk wad. The shot does not
string out as it does in a regular shell. Polywad's
Dispersion Control Technology guides the leading pellets
to the outer edge of the pattern, while trailing pellets
stay in the center of the pattern. Hard hits are
delivered throughout the pattern!
Features and Benefits of the High
Performance SPRED-R Shotshell:
- Larger patterns develop quickly from any bore,
solving the problem of close range shooting
- Downrange pattern density and pellet energy is
maintained to insure effectiveness for longer range
- 2-3 times increased square inches of coverage to
increase your hits
- Pellets are distributed evenly in the inner and
outer circle of the pattern for cleaner, quicker
- Hard hitting throughout the entire pattern for
less wounding of game and more busted targets

Polywad Spred-R Shells & Inserts:
by customer Ron Kowalsky of Limerick, ME
“I’ve bought your
Spred-R loads in the 20 and 12 (gauge shells), and
I’ve bought the round plastic disks with the post on
them (Spred-R Inserts) that you use to reload your
wanted to tell you, those things work remarkable.
I still have some of your shells that you
manufacture, and when I shoot those it makes an
expert out of a mediocre shooter.
I’ve hit 7 pheasants in a row with those
things without a miss out of a pretty tightly choked
barrel, but using the polywads it makes it duck soup
to hit those flushing birds.
I just wanted to tell you how well your
product works, even better on woodcock which are
very close flushing birds.”

"Do they work? Absolutely."
Seyfried, Guns and Ammo
"SPRED-R Shotshells are attracting a following among
sporting clay shooters finding extra targets on their
scoresheets, among wingshooters bringing home that extra
bird in the bag, game taken cleanly but not mangled by
too-tight shot swarms."
Lawrence, Double Gun Journal
"Of all the loads tested (250 tests), only one put
the same percentage of pellets in both the center circle
and the outer ring. The load was the SPRED-R."
Williams, Shotgun Sports
"One that's impressed me lately is the SPRED-R. My
pattern tests with a full choke gun revealed a total
spread at 20 yards as large as that given by an ordinary
load at 40 yards. Although there's less difference with
open chokes, the patterns are still larger than with
