Default Steel or Lead shot

Just picked up a 500 tactical. For HD situation, is there a preference between 00 Buck Lead or Steel shot? Both are devastating and will do the 'job'.

Steel - lighter but harder, shot pattern stays together, accurate over longer distances.

Lead - Weighs more, shot deforms slightly, less accurate at longer distances.

This needed to go into the Shotgun forum instead of the gallery. Guess I'll have to post a pic now!
