Hevi-Shot Hevi-Metal

Hevi-Shot and other tungsten-iron pellets are the most promising alternative to steel, but at a high price point. Hevi-Shot maker Environ-Metal has found a way to lower the cost by combining 50-50 mixes of tungsten and steel to create Hevi-Metal. These loads are composed of smaller Hevi-Shot pellets stacked on top of larger steel shot. My testing shows that the Hevi-Shot portion of the load migrates to the outer edges of the pattern as the shot flies downrange, where it helps to fill out the pattern. hevishot.com
