    I filled up a 5 gal bucket today with #8 lead shot. Picked it up off the floor.
    How much do you think it weighs?
    or How many bags will it take to fill it up?

    Thanks

    I don't think you picked up, 8's 9' 71/2' no matter what size not enough weight difference to matter.

    A 55 gallon drum full weighs 3300 lbs.

    that makes your bucket 300 lbs.

    All you guys that are lifting those buckets do it while you are young and break your back. This way when you get old like me you will be lucky if you can bend over.
