    My gun club has reclaimed shot for sale. They catch the shot on a large plastic tarp. They sell as is, an it is clean. Can i reload this shot as it is, without some kind of other treatment?
    Thanks

    Yes! will it be as perfect as new? No! Will it still kill a lot of clays? Yes! Of course, you'll have a mixture of all sorts of shot sizes in your loads but I can't think of a problem with that.....breakemall...Bob Dodd

    It might be a good idea to put a few pounds in an empty powder jug with a teaspoon of powdered graphite and shake well before using. The shot will go through the reloader a lot easier without jamming up in the tube. HMB

    The tarp must be 100 feet by 150 feet. It catches most of the shot from two traps.I beleave they use a broom to get the shot to one area then dust pan it into a bucket. They sell it for a 1.00 a pound. The gun club is pinebelt in new jersey.
