broken shot (particles)
Explanation:
Presumably they mean shot that is split in half, not half-split shot. I first thought of 'split shot', but it googles very poorly in context.

Broken shot is considerably more abrasive than whole shot, which is probably the reason for the restriction here.

shot material and shot-shape -Straaltechniek International provides 5 types of shot: cast--steel-shot, glass-bead, ceramic - bead, cut-wire-steel-shot and stainless-steel-cut-wire-shot. The spherical shape of the shot has to be controlled and maintained (broken shot, hollow shot, shot with sharp edges and two particles connected to each are not allowed). Double spiral separators can be used in combination with sieves.
