BTW   There are as many variations on grits are there are in steel shot loads ( actually more).  Both as to types of grind, types of corn, and types of recipes.   I won't attempt to list the types or go through the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company -type variation list.  Saying "grits are grits" to a southerner  is perhaps akin to saying "white wine is white wine " to a Californian.  :D

I made a mistake there in saying “steel loads” . What I meant to say was “steel pellets” are what is pretty much all the same. And, 

with the exception of HeviX, they are all indeed pretty much the same. 

 

Up until 5 years ago when my daughter started Grad School at Emory University down in Hotlanta, Georgia I had never even heard of grits. Still know very little about them. When I asked what they were in a restaurant, the cute little waitress gave me the “grits are grits” line that I’ve hear many times since.

 

I’m not much on white wine, but I do enjoy our higher quality Napa Valley reds. 

 

Anyway, steel pellets are basically all the same until HeviX.

I bailed this year as I also have a stash of Bismuth 12ga 2 3/4" 5s.  I can't take them with me so I used them on the farm as it's private land/creek and I can pick my shots better.  Needless to say they were pretty lights out on wood ducks.  I buy the good stuff anytime I see it at gun shows for $1 a shot or less, but then hesitate to use it.  I'm not a steel hater though which is why I have a couple hundred rounds of the TM and Bismuth I should probably just shoot.
