    I picked up my order this morning from Lead Miner. Folks, this guy has some awesome reclaimed shot. There is absolutely no trickery with him. The picture he shows of his shot is exactly what you get. No dust, no clumps, just good round reclaimed shot. I have already ran a few boxes worth thru my loader and I see no difference in function what so ever. I can't wait to get out and shoot some of my reclaimed shot loads.

    On top of a great product at an honest price, Terry is a hell of a nice guy to meet and chat with. Besides, I wouldn't bad mouth him as his hands are as big as my face. LOL

    Nice meeting you Terry and thanks for some great shot.

    I purchased 125# from Terry last year at the Michigan State Shoot and agree with the above posts. Thanks Terry for a great product.

    I bought 1600 lbs from Terry almost a year & a half ago. I have bought new shot that isn't as good as shape as terrys shot. Have had no problem with it out of any of my mecs. Will buy from him again when this is gone. Rich

    I bought 500 lbs and have loaded and used about half of it without any problems. Terry is a nice person; I insisted he count the money that I gave him before I left. He didn't, saying he trusted trap shooters (this was the first time I had met him).

    I wonder what is the level of lead in his blood though!

    creeker,

    I have opened and used (2) bags of Terry's shot now. I dumped each bag into a tub and then I ran a pretty powerful magnet thru the tub. It came up clean with not even a spec of dust stuck to the magnet. Terry did tell me that I may find a stray piece here and there but his system for cleaning the shot runs it thru several powerful magnets to separate any steel. I fully expected a piece or two but so far I haven't found so much as a spec of steel. To say I'm sold on his shot would be an understatement.

    Calm down men. His demand will go up -supply will go down and you should know the rest. I am on my third barell of lead from him though.

    Up for Terry's shot. Put the gun to your shoulder and let it fly. If you start questioning the pattern its you not the shot. Good quality shot in todays market.

    First time I bought reclaimed shot, it was from Terry. After that I heard of horror stories about reclaimed shot. His looked new so, I could not understand the problems that folks were having. Now after some research I have found out Terry's would be premium extra clean reclaimed shot, if they had a grading system on reclaimed shot. I have not used up what I purchased before from Terry but, I will only use Terry's reclaimed shot or new in the future. He has the best product I have ever seen out there

    Great Job Lead Miner Keep up the Quality work see you soon.
