You are at the right site for this. Just go back to the start and look for the conversion chart/computer. oz

First thing you have to figure out is how much does a 25 lb bag of shot weigh...

Every time I see a thread like this I get a little worried. I’ve always hoped that everyone that reloads shells would follow the first and most important safety rule, “use a reloading manual”. I could be wrong but I’m assuming that every reloading manual has weights and measurement charts with this information. The reason that I assume that is because everyone that I’ve ever picked up had the information. I just get real nervous knowing that there are reload-shooters out there that never look at a reloading manual.

My suggestion, stop asking knuckle heads like me and others on this site for reloading information that could put your life and those around you at risk. If you need a good load look in your books, if you need data for loading, look in your book. If you need more information that you can’t find in your book post a thread on this site asking for “good books on the subject”. So if you’re asking question that can be found in any reloading book I’m guessing you don’t have one or don’t use it. In either case, please stop reloading until you change one or both of those issues.

Thanks

rev- You did it right and I know how to load the 5/9 of a shell. I have loaded several of them with just a little over half of what should be in them.

The real question should be after I spill the shot, how much can I recover to make how many shells. Fred

Okay, so at at $32.00/bag (plus tax), how much does each one oz of shot cost? I went thru college using a slide rule! Pitt `70. First TI calc`r was $69.95; added-subtracted, multiplied-divided, square root. We`ll look back at $32/bag shot and $3.0 a gallon gas as a bargain in less than a year. Using my abacus; it seems most things have risen in price by about 30% in the last nine months. Can you say Jimmy Carter?

Rich- Your basic math failed to incorporate some basic reloading facts. The bushings I have tested that were marked 1 1/8 oz of shot actually drop something closer to 1 1/16 oz of shot. I can only recall weighing the contents of two bags of shot marked 25 pounds. Both were a few ounces short of the marked weight. Every bag of shot I have loaded contains some shot that seems to jump out of the hull onto my reloading table. I do not know how the shot does this but it does. A cocked wad and a primer feeding problem will waist a couple of ounces of shot per bag.

Rich- to test the actual number of shells produced per bag of shot, I suggest that you load all of the shot in 20 different bags and count the shells produced. Then take the square root of S squared for each bag. S squared is calculated by the difference between X and the mean squared over N-1. This will give you a reasonable range at the 95% level of the number of shells that can be loaded from one bag of shot. Simple basic math.

perazzi-tm1- My answer to your question would be about 14 boxes.

Willing, I read that Snopes article and it was about the dumbest one I've seen. They gave the status as False, but did not deny it was an actual test. They said it did not prove a decline in standards, because the test was not really that hard, for students drilled in the material!!! Methinks Snopes has an ax to grind. Maybe they are teachers.

I'm sure that you all know that Basic Math does not work with bags of shot, comes close but not exact. Especially when your reloader drops shot by volume and not by weight per load, unless you have a metric bar on a MEC. This is especially true where hard shot and chilled shot do not weigh the same by volume. Now for you to answer your own question, use your powder scale to determine the average weight of your shot drop in grains, then use your Basic Math as there are 7000 grains to a lb. Each bag of shot just like lots of powder weighs a little different by volume. If you can come across a 2001 or earlier edition of Hodgdon reloaders manual, close to the center is some valuable information, the book is well worth keeping, never understood why they discontinued printing this part of their book.

Basic math: 16 oz per pound so 16 X 25 = 400 oz per bag.

1 1/8 oz per shell calculates as 400 / 1.125 = 355 loads per bag

1 oz per shell calculates as 400 / 1.000 = 400 loads per bag

7/8 oz per shell calculates as 400 / 0.875 = 457 loads per bag

2000 lb per ton yields 80 bags or 1 ton yields

1 1/8 oz per load yields 355 x 80 = 28,400 loads

1 oz per load yields 400 x 80 = 32,000 loads

7/8 oz per load yields 457 x 80 = 36,560 loads

Basic math taught at grade school. See thread "Does it have air conditioning"

I had this figure some place but can not locate it, the topic came up between myself and a friend. How many shells can you load with a 25 Lb bag of 7 1/2 shot loading at 1 1/8 oz load?

It might have been in one of my loading books.
