    Do not use Hevi Shot in any gun that was not designed to be able to shoot steel.

    Hevi-shot has come out with a product called Classic Doubles that is, according to the factory rep present at The Vintagers, safe for use in older doubles. It is rated at "under 8000 psi and velocities under 1250 fps". The above aside, I still wouldn't shoot it out of a tight-choked gun.
