    I see on other threads that several clubs in Illinois have had reclaimers in recently. Do any clubs have reclaimed shot available? Peoria? others? And at what price? Thanks.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    If I recall correctly Peoria sold the lead that the reclaiming produced to be melted. None was sold as shot.

    Peoria waited too long to mine, the shot was not useable for reloading. Chillacothe was mined, Brittany had same results as Peoria. I bought a bag of reclaimed in the mid 70's. I loaded 50 shells and used them in 2 rounds of practice. I broke about 43,44. not 1 ink ball only chips. I went to the counter and bought a box of new light 7 1/2s and put up almost all ink balls.
    I gave the rest of the bag away.
