    For what it is worth I found steel in 20g really not good for both gun and killing. Went to bismuth or heavishot if you can get it. Yes it's expensive but you usually don't shoot tooo many in a session.

    All I can say is; "Please Don't!"

    We used steel shot one year on a shoot I belonged to, the results were dreadful, we had so many wounded birds it was appalling.

    Even the science the Americans used to justify the lead shot ban is appalling, if you don't believe me find it online and have yourself a good laugh.

    There are far better alternatives, Hevi-Shot being the best by far followed by Tungsten Matrix and then the new improved Bismuth (not as brittle as the older version).

    Please, please, please don't use steel!! It is not humane in my opinion and the opinion of the chaps I shoot with.

    It just takes a bit of getting use to.
    But not in a 20 guage
