Low carbon steel shot has a lower hardness than high carbon steel shot. Because of its microstructure it resist impact well until the moment it suddenly scatters and turns into dust. It is often used for flash descaling. Since low carbon steel shot is softer it not possible to crush it into grit, which is therefore not available.
