    Does anyone know about reclaiming shot from a trap field? How effective are they? Can it be reclaimed(make like new), cost and any other facts. Maybe a web site to go to.

    Thank You

    I just bought 2 bags of reclaimed shot and see a lot of them have flat spots. It will be interesting how they pattern on paper but for $20.

    Shot reclaiming, shot for sale http://mcneeley5.googlepages.com
    The flat spots happen as the shot is exiting the barrel, shot on shot. Mike

    The Oak Ridge, TN shooters went to a club in Indiana for reclaimed shot. They are pleased with the shot's performance at Trap, both Singles and 27 yard Handicap. They bought all the various vehicles could carry.

    The Club owner harvests his shot with a Back Hoe. He uses screens, fans et al in his process. He balked at the commercial recovery split of only 1/3 of the proceeds for the Club. Earl Hamman

    PS We have covered this subject in the last 6 months.

    I bought a metric ton of reclaimed shot this fall from a club nearby. Yes, there are a lot of less-than-perfect pellets in it. But golf balls are intentionally dimpled to assure straight flight, aren't they? And the stuff is actually lighter per drop than the new shot I have (to the tune of about 15 pellets-worth of weight in a 1 1/8 oz drop so it's harder than the new stuff I buy. And for 87ยข a pound it works perfectly!
