I'm with alfa taf on this, it's anyones guess as to the content of antimony thats added to the lead altering the density and weight of the shot, cut the crimp off if you realy must know! :good: and count em! :yes:

According to the Eley shooters diary there are 400 7.5's per ounce (28gr) so 21gr will be 300.
