Hevisteel

6 posts in this topic

So has anybody tried the new Hevisteel. It is billed as Hevishots little brother and isnt quite as expensive as the Hevishot is. I think that it runs about $20 per box of 25.

Used it last year during Duck season and HATED IT. I had better luck with regular steel and of course Hevi Shot or Kent Matrix.

3" #6's didnt pattern worth a crap in my super x2 which uses the invector + choke system. ended up shooting pigeons to burn up the box.

Carp, was the bad pattern caused by shooting too tight of a choke? I think you have to open up to at least mod, or possibly improved. I havent had a chance to try any yet but wilol definitly pattern before going hunting with it

I used 3 1/2" hevi-steel 4's on ducks this year and it killed a lot more ducks per shot than the faststeel 2's that I usually use. My best 40 yd pattern was with the factory mod. rem choke. The hevi-steel has been recently redesinged. If u had the red hull shells they are the old design.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
