    I am trying to find good bags for bagging up reclaimed lead shot. They need to be relatively strong. Obviously old shot bags would work great, however I need something in greater quantity that is readily available. Does anyone know where I could find premade bags that fit this description, preferably for cheap? Thanks.

    We use half gallon juice containers. they hold 25 lbs nicely and are strong.

    I would wager there are many tossed out near you.

    2 litre bottles also work very well for this. Just like HM stated, plenty of these are discarded.

    A 2L plastic drink bottle will hold 25 pounds.

    And after you're done emptying all those 2L bottles you also have the characteristic dimensions of a trap shooter.

    Large plastic round coffee containers (13-16oz) work well also.

    Thank you all for the help. It looks like www.uline.com sells both burlap and woven polypropelene bags for about $0.30 a pound. I do use the 2 liter bottle method at home. But I need these bags so I can sell them to people on a bag by bag basis.
