    I noticed the shot I reclaimed at our club has small flat spots all over, assume this is from compression. If you where to tumble shot in a cement mixer would it round it out? I just use a shovel and screen to reclaim shot.

    I doubt that it would do anything, I would just shoot it and pretend that it is brand new shot.

    What we need is a resizing die for the shot. This will return the shot to its original shape. After screening, just lube with graphite and resize. HMB

    Nipper for what it took to get what I got, it cost about 80.00 bag. Heavy wooded and brush fall zone. My wife works nights so on Sat mornings I cant really stay around the house I keep her up. There is no trap shooting on sat. So I fool around reclaiming shot. I have plans for a sifter that may make it easier. I will try to get a few helpers next time out.
