Is tungsten good for darts?

Tungsten is used to make darts because it is a dense metal. The more tungsten a dart barrel has, the smaller it can be made without sacrificing weight. The higher the tungsten content, the higher the quality of the dart. The most commonly used alloys are anywhere between 80% and 90% tungsten.

Are higher tungsten darts better?

These high-density tungsten darts resist wear far better than brass or nickel.
