As I'll be hunting with pop when he returns in country, so I needed to stock up on some nontox waterfowl ammo. Although prices on raw tungsten have skyrocket over the years, prices on Kent's Tungsten Matrix have remained constant from when I bought my last case a few years ago. Still they are not cheap at $320 a case of 100, but that is actually $29 cheaper than what I paid about 3 years ago. Whereas Hevi-Shot Classic Doubles have nearly doubled at $410/100. I recall paying a little over $2 a shot a few years ago with their rebate coupon. Recently when checking websites, I was shocked when I saw their pricing.
Personally that's fine as I feel Kent is a better round. They have faster velocity and larger shot charges. Also I've taken more ducks with it than I have with the Classic Double. I believe it has to do not only on velocity but weight as well. Kent's shot weighs 10.8g/cc, that is close to the 11.1g/cc that of lead. Classic Double is 9.4g/cc. Unless Tungsten Matrix pricing goes off the roof I'll be sticking with it in the future.
