Just got around to patterning a box of Hevi X that I've had sitting on the shelf since last year. While my patterns were acceptable I cut a shell open to get a pellet count. These are 1 1/4 oz. #4's and I counted 238 pellets. This is remarkably close to #4 steel in pellet count for the same weight load. I'm going to cut a few more open to compare. Has anyone else cut any open and counted pellets? I just don't see how these can be denser than steel when they have such a similar pellet count in the same shot size and load weight.
