    9's work great for shooting rats. I suspect that 12's will be too small for all but head shots. I loaded some 12's and shot 16 yard trap and they wouldn't break the target but would knock the whole outside of the rim off. We killed over 200 rats one night at a dairy with 1/2 oz of 9's. they really worked great. Jeff

    OK - several people are interested in this stuff...

    I have two fifty pound bags from Illinois Lead Shot Company, the bags are shot, so it is loose - I have it all stored in an ammo can (A BIG ammo can). I was thinking a sixteen Oz. plastic soda bottle sent through the US Mail. I need to figure how much this weighs to figure a price - we can go from there...

    A little bit goes a long way with this stuff...

    If you are interested, please send me an e-mail (drop the 'X's), so I can respond directly to you.

    Once I figure how much a bottle weighs I'll post a price here too.

    put it in some type of sturdy bag and use the usps flat rate box. like the man said it's about 8 dollars and that is any weight. Not sure about the 4 dollar deal but make sure that it does not leak out in shipping. Check with the post office as they probably loose money on the flat rate deal motordoc

    Looks like five pounds fills a 12 ounce bottle. My 'good' scale maxes out at six pounds - more than that and I'm using a bathroom scale.

    As I said before, a little goes a long way.

    I've heard several different prices for the USPS - flat rate priority is $8.95 for this - as long as it fits into their boxes. I'm NOT sure if the cost covers the cost of the box too.

    If all checks out I figure $20 for five pounds delivered is fair. I think I can add more bottles to each box if you want more - we can figure prices then - please e-mail (drop the X's).

    I figure I have about 75 pounds left...

    'landyn16' and 'Blaine' get first crack at this...

    Landyn16,

    FYI I am essentially charging $2 per pound - the rest is shipping.

    I'm happy to combine for larger quantities, thus reducing shipping costs.

    Ballistic Products is selling same for close to $40 for 10 pounds, plus shipping (http://shop2.mailordercentral.com/bpicart/prodinfo.asp?number=02612).
