I ended up getting steel grit 80 grit 200 pounds I also 50 pounds glass beads in case I cut some aluminum.
I used a very expensive siphon feed cabinet. I am so glad I switched to a pressure pot blasting.
That very expensive cabinet could not blast near as well as my setup.

I had ordered 100 pounds steel grit from northern tool for about $200
I canceled that order. I bought 200 pounds steel grit and 50 pounds glass beads for $150 out the door and I got to try out steel shot and a couple things to make sure it would work for me.
I really liked the guy that runs the company they were all very nice.

The steel grit could last 500-1000 round trips from blaster to cabinet.
That is very appealing to help keep cost down. Just keeping me for making trips to pick up media is worth it. My wife usually picks stuff for me but media is just to heavy for her to get for me.
