Kent Tungsten Matrix Waterfowl

Four out of five dentists surveyed recommend Kent Tungsten Matrix to their patients who chew nontoxic shot. Not really, but Kent Tungsten Matrix remains my favorite nontoxic pellet. And if you can afford to pay $3 per shell, it's the closest thing to lead in terms of density and patterning. A mix of tungsten powder and polymer blended to just below the density of lead, this shot responds to chokes like lead and hits like it, too. It is completely safe in many older gun barrels, and so soft that it's actually chewy when you accidentally bite a piece at the dinner table. Although Tungsten Matrix is available in waterfowl and upland loads, I use my small supply primarily in my double guns for pheasant hunting. kentgamebore.com
