    I am interested in what type of coolant you are using to make homemade shot.
    I know there is Hydraulic Oil, Brake Fluid, and Crop Oil Concentrate.
    I know nothing about using Low Tox Antifreeze or Liquid Laundry Soap.
    Could someone please tell me how you mix antifreeze and liquid soap?
    What solutions are you using to wash off the shot?

    I have not had a chance to work with them. Three members of my skeet league teem make shot. They use soapy water as coolant, they just don't want to mess with oils or anything they have to worry about spilling.

    They say that you have to watch the water temp, too hot the lead starts acting funny.
