    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.
