Re: S330 or S280 shot blasting media (Liquid Gravity)

Assuming the reviewer measured the bulk density correctly (hmmm...), and assuming the beads were at least approaching closed pack density, the the density of the mystery metal was in ballpark of 5.6 g/cm3.

There are no obvious candidates among earth-bound metals, which makes me doubt the first assumption.  Overpriced steel is still the best guess.

not tungsten ?

      If the actual density is even REMOTELY like the 4.15 g/cm3 claimed in the review, it sure ain't tungsten. You could look it up.
