hanging heavy mirror and tv into metal stud?

anyone have any experience hanging a heavy mirror or TV into metal studs.
i believe my basement has metal studs as i took a flat head screw driver and slipped it under
an area where there wasn't a baseboard and sounded like i hit metal base.

for my large mirror i have a j channel that i think i located the metal studs and just drilled right into it
with a screw, along with a couple of ez anchors that are 50lbs rated each. along with 2 other mirror clips on the beggining and end that are rated at 20lbs each
my mirror weighs around 65 lbs.
