    HUH? You mean you pick 'em up and shoot 'em over? I've never heard of anyone doing that.

    Mike,

    You need to get out more. Lol. Not so much anymore, but this was a common practice with some of the rural shooters. I know more than one shooter that has broken 100 straight with recycled wads.

    Those wads as so good we all should be out there trying to find them for reloading. I applaud you for recycling. You might want to try their biodegradeable wads which have taken over some of the shooting sites on the west coast.

    You can load them as many times as you want, but probably only shoot them about once.

    Sure, you can reuse the wads! In my younger days dad was trying to keep both of us shooting and I got the used wads........and shot lots of 25's with them. We even went so far as to put them in a mesh bag and run em through the washing machine. Makes them look like a million bucks and they shoot plenty fine. We reused only AA wads........and only ONCE! I don't think I would knowingly shoot them more than once unless I had to.
