The Benefits of Steel Shot 

 
All steel shot is carefully manufactured and finished with a rust inhibitor and can be packed in 5 kilo bottles, or 1000 kilo nylon bags or drums.
  • Providers of highly polished, precision steel shot

  • Steel shot is up to 3 times harder than lead.
  • It stays round and flies truer to the target.
  • Deforms little upon firing, producing more even patterns.
  • Increased velocities produces greater strike energy.
  • Shorter, narrower shot strings.
  • Higher pellet counts due to lower density.
  • The cheapest, most widely used alternative.

Bismuth

Ballistically good and available in a wide range of loads up to magnum. No risk to guns. Available in fibre and plastic wads. Bismuth shells can cost up to 5 times the lead equivalent.

 

Tungsten Matrix

The nearest alternative to lead shot. Reports on performance are good. Loose shot is also available for home loading and punt guns. High density but more expensive - 5-6 times the cost of lead. Available in fibre and plastic wads.
 

Tin

Introduced to the UK in 1997. Comparable to steel in density. Performs better at shorter ranges. Can be loaded on fibre, plastic or cork wads and fired through any type of barrel in any gauge.
