I still have a few boxes of steel Active shotshells. They are great for out here on the coast. In the salt enviroment I hunt in it is constant battle with rust on the shotshell brass(brass washed steel)head. No problem with Actives, Wanda and some of the Herters were good also but they needed a special over shot wad.

There isn't as much data for the Activ hull and steel shot anymore. I have some older data for the 2 3/4" and 3" hull. At the time it was thought that the 7/8 oz was the favored weight so there really wasn't a whole lot of research done for anything heavier. I could dig up some data if anyone wants it and could scan what I have..
