These examples can not be accurate given common thought on HTL loads. If a HTL 9 weighs the same as a lead 5 then there would be an equal number of pellets in a 1oz load. The ONLY way there would be more is if ammo was loaded "by volume" and not weight. I agree that in 1oz of material of equal density there would be more 9's than 5's but we are talking about a smaller shot having equal weight. 1oz is 1oz!
