Has anybody heard of these type of shotgun shell's ? I heard through the grapevine that this stuff is the ultimate in shot density.I have no idead who makes it or if it is true or not.I guess it is heavier than lead and holds an extremely tight pattern.

Thanks Hen

I think it's Hevi-shot (tungsten/iron ?) checkout Remmington, I think they are using it as a nonlead waterfowl type load

Huntsman seems to have it Hevi-Shot was originally independently owned I think and Remington bought them out and started marketing the shells. Expensive but I hear great things.

On the front of their homepage now:
