    Recently got some reclamed shot and it looks dry. Would it be a good idea to add some dry graphite to the bag of shot?

    It couldn't hurt but be judicious. It takes very little. A little goes a long way.

    I add 1/4 teaspoon of graphite to 25 pounds of shot. 1/4 teaspoon is plenty. Just make sure you mix it throughout all the shot. Tom

    Ken, If you don't want the mess of graphite, try Motor Mica. It's white and works as well. Bud Wood
