    Cartridge shot

    Has anyone ever come across a stainless steel shot in a shotgun cartridge ?.

    I dont think there would be one as it would be expensive but im not sure.

    Any info guy's ??.

    Whilst some steel is marketed as has more chrome or other metal steel under the "wrong" conditions is ever truly rustless. Indeed highly polished steel...such as a ball bearing...has its own rust resistance. Just through being highly polished.

    Most steel shot is, or used to be, IRON not in fact steel.

    So a "cheap" rust resisting steel shot might be simply high quality high polished ball bearings. As to its suitability for use I wouldn't venture an opinion. Gold plated soft iron shot might be a cheaper alternative.

    As GWP says I think stainless steel would be too hard.
