    59 years old--shot trap five years-reloaded since I was 14--moved into a new house with a roughed out basement two years ago. Spent a ton of money and more time finishing it out just like I always wanted a reloading room. Built new tables, shelves, added lighting, everything. Bought two new top line loaders. Place looks like a calendar photo for reloading.
    Now I can't afford shot!!!
    Would not have it any other way!!

    Got any pictures of your finished reloading room?

    Would be neat to see.

    Well, Jim, if you're like me, you'll soon have that ol' house for sale and you'll do a few more loading rooms by the time you're 65<;-)....Bob Dodd

    Have you thought about making your own shot? Its not that expensive to get started and you can probably pay for your equipment quickly.
    Jim Stewart makes the best shotmaker around and he makes a Single Bowl or a Double Bowl. With # 71/2 drippers a Single will produce about 45lbs per hour.
    A Double with #7 1/2 drippers will produce about 90lbs per hour. Take a look at Stewart's web page at:http://www.geocities.com/jstewart1934/My_page.html
    You have to type all of the above exactly in the space to get the page.
    If you will email me I will send you pictures of the shotmakers.
    I don't know how much you shoot but between Jim and myself we spend only a couple of hours a day making the shot and then reloading our shells.
    Don't give up on shooting just because of the price of shot.
