If lead and steel shot were the same, steel shot would be cheaper than lead. Steel shot is
harder, corrosive-resistant, and produces no toxic effects when ingested by waterfowl. However,
steel shot is more expensive than lead because it requires more production, and because lead is
heavier and denser, it can damage most shotgun barrels. Moreover, steel shot is less dense
than lead, making it inferior ballistically.
