Are you sure you dont mean Remington HD shells? The only Hevi- Steel I know of is put out by Environmetal.

hevi-steel isnt new. it is made by environmetal. if u are using it, shoot the same size as u would with lead, but a little faster.

Heavy-Steel came out to give hunters that shot steel a little edge.

It is between steel and the Tungstun-steel in density.

However it is no way as good as the Tungstun-steel !!

Now you have three types of steel loads to choose from.

The main thing with steel is...............

What range are you going to shoot at !!

Pass shooting is a lot different than shooting over decoys or close ranges.

Good luck Sage

I use #4 on ducks and #2 on geese. So far it is working real good. BUT, be sure to pattern it. It seems to be real finicky with choke selection.

Please buy it and shoot it....it out performs marginal shooting ability...and if you really use the stuff it will cleanly out perform lead in any way shape or form......if you gotta use the stuff....do not take long shots near me...as I will ask you to cease and assist thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
