I shoot Tungsten-Iton and absolutly love the stuff. My dad shoots Hevi-shot and it works too I just can't pay that kind of money for it while pying for school. The only reason that I pay the price that I do for the T/I is because I figure after all of the money spent on a great gun (SBE), deks, clothing, why not shoot good shells. Why spend all that money on good equipment and then shoot cheap shells. IMO. Also if you want to see some good fold easily at 50 yards try some. I shoot #2's early season and then usually shoot #1's or BB's.
