The hevi-metal cartridge is a reasonably priced alternative to hevi-shot. I can testify that these will bring down Canada geese.

Best steel shot
HEVI-Metal is the best steel shot I have used yet.
I use a 870 and the ducks go down at 50 yards no problem.

Awesome duck rounds
Guided for 30 years. For the money, these loads knock-em dead out of the sky and hold tight at 50 yards with my Remington and Winchester . Patterns nicely with my 870 and pops-em like pillows over decoys.

Everything fires at the same velocity, the difference is the density in the steel (50% of the load) and the hevishot (other 50% of the load). The heavier hevishot maintains its downrange energy better and therefore flies further and hits harder. At closer distances where the steel is effective, the smaller hevishot pellets just provide pattern density to fill any holes in the pattern.
These loads are a duplex load. They actually have 2 different kinds of pellets in them, on is a smaller Environmetal pellet and the other is a larger Steel pellet. this maximizes effective range and energy, and puts more pellets into the kill zone, or pattern. always remember to use the best chokes you can afford. i like to use the HEVI-Shot choke tubes for maximum effectiveness.
it makes alot of differance steel shot is light and doesnt patern well lead being best has high density shoots further and hits hard. hevi shot is a blend of iron and other metals alot hevier than steel. just not as heavy as lead. or you can buy tungsten or bismuth rounds and break the bank. they are denser than lead. your answer to density throw a sponge doesnt go far hits something no damage throw a brick the same size and damage
No you do not. As long as you are shooting a choke that is approved for steel you should be fine. But as always read the manufactors recomindations on what size and what loads to shoot through your choke
Nope! But HEVI-Shot choke tubes are specifically designed to maximize your pattern density with the heavier loads. We use these loads to minimize losses and cripples and to bag more birds at the end of the day. We use the chokes for the same reason!
no modified choke for larger shot size is recomended however any brand that fits your gun will do. choose a good choke that can handle steel if needed and you can use for all your needs ( kicks high flyer choke tubes )
