    Bought some reclaimed shot, this stuff is round enough but is in all sizes, #9 to #6's and will hang up in the shot drop tube. i have put baby powder on the shot and it helped. Anyone else had any problems like this???

    No, the reclaimed shot I bought was tumbled in graphite before I bought it and it runs through my PW like new shot.

    Use Graphite. A small amount will do.

    If you are loading on a Mec reloader, either change your shot drop tube to a drop tube for steel shot or cut off the tapered end of your current lead shot drop tube. Mec sells the steel shot tubes on line or you can call Mec's customer service department. Reclaim shot loading on a P&W is not a problem-it drops fine-the tube is not tapered. Duke
