Steel shot provides a cheaper, viable alternative to lead, which performs well.

Two factors which must be considered when choosing a load:

  • Density 

  • Hardness

Steel shot is approximately 30% lighter than lead shot of equal size. This doesn't equate to 30% reduction in energy, as load velocity is managed; increasing velocity increases pellet energy. Larger pellets contain more energy per pellet at longer ranges. However, the larger the pellet, the more difficult it is to control for patterns.

So when selecting your load, choose the pellet with sufficient energy for your requirements, rather than just the maximum size possible. Generally, shooters experienced with steel shot recommend using a shot that is one or two sizes bigger than the equivalent lead shot.

For example, if you generally use a lead size 5, try a steel size 4 or 3.
