yes. they are more lethal at further distances

The hitting power seems to be better then all the other high speed steel I have used. The ducks come down hard.

The velocity on these shells is around 1500fps on average. the big benefits of the Hevi-Metal is the steel and Hevi-Shot mix.

With Hevimetal you get an unheard of 1500fps without giving up the power and patterning. Pick up a Hevishot choke to take it to another level!

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.

On average standard steel has a range of 40 yards max, with Hevi Metal you are looking at effective ranges of 50-60 yards.

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
