Dear Experts.
Please explain the lead and Steel shots.

I Just use Shaheen Cartridges(Shot no.4 ,6 ,8 ,BB ,AAA ,SG etc.) can u explain whether they use lead or steel to make these Shots ?

They all have lead shots.

Since lead is a toxic material, steel shots are used by some to reduce the contamination of water during waterfoul/ duck hunting. Lead is heavier and denser. But since it is a bit soft and deform easily, it can pass through all kinds of chokes without damaging them.

OTOH, I have no idea if steel shot cartridges are available with Shaheen brand.
