    Not yet. I have a buddy with some property, but it will be weeks before I'll have access to a place to experiment.

    Wait.......

    So, they are mixing bismuth and steel, and there is only ONE pellet size difference between the two, you get double the steel pellets vs the bismuth, and for that that you get the privilege of paying $100 more per case, vs their All Steel Hevi Steel (just to keep the comparison in their family)

    Where do I sign up?

    The only word club members can read is "Hevi" and it's spelled wrong. :l

    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    So hevi-hammer and hevi-metal longer range are the same? Both say bismuth pellets over steel pellets, but one is $5 more per box of 25?

    Yup with hevi hammer only having 15% bismuth over steel... what a waste of money

    While your steadfast loyalty to EMI is admirable, the results of so many other gunners furnish antithetical outcomes.

    At ~$1.75 per round, the one ounce load of #7 HW-15 leaves anything that I’ve seen from EMI, in the dust. Show us the 50-70 yard patterns from either HM or HM-LR that are even in the same galaxy as true HTL cartridges.

    I'm as big an EMI detractor as anyone, but in all fairness you can't exactly walk into your local sporting goods store and buy a box of HW15 waterfowl loads.
