    I was just tring to find out where those who make their own shot or those who use recycled shot get the powered graphite. I have several old bags of shot that need to be cleaned and lubricated. It is hanging up in my reloaders. I tried talcom powder but it did not work. Also, it made a big mess.
    Thanks

    Implement dealer. JOhn Deere has it in quart containers.

    It was very inexpensive. 3- 4 bucks is all.

    Use sjparingly, about a teaspoon to 50 lbs, even a little less.

    Put a few pounds of shot in an empty plastic powder jug with a teaspoon of graphite and shake well before using. HMB

    When reclaimed shot was available around here I picked up a small bottle of graphite at the local hardware store. Since I don't need to add much to the lead even a small bottle lasts forever.
