It is a mix of tungsten (I believe) and normal steel shot.  Supposed to extend your range and improve the "hitting power" of your load.  The information I have read about it sounds impressive.

Agree with above, from what I read the idea was to get the customer ammo at a reasonable price. I've been buying it for around $21.00 a box. The spec 's that I read are really good.

I bought a box this season. I was pretty impressed with them. I cut one open to check them out and they have SEED (or what i thought were seeds) inside of them. The price was pretty good too!

Some of the best I have used. Seems to be a good ammo with a good price. I bought a whole case from Macks as well.

I only shot a box of it this season but i will definitely be buying more. From the reading I gathered that its a tungsten matrix shot(tungsten and steel melted together) it has the irregular shape of tungsten ,but is not as bad on your barrel. I killed 7 ducks and one goose with it, shooting 3.5'' #3's all were clean kills except the goose. It did create alot better wound channels than steel.
