Reclaimed shot - How many times?

Rain today so decided to bottle some shot for reloading. I have had trouble with fine sand in my reclaimed so I dump a bag into a five gallon bucket and screen it before putting into gallon jugs. Jugs are easier to pour into the hoppers. Anyhow, I noticed some damaged shot in the mix and got to wondering how many times shot can be reused before its all beat up into frisbees? At some time, the shot will have to be re-dropped into new.

So how cheap was this shot?

I have tried re-claim shot but I find it has lost it's memory on how to get to the target, kind of like old jockey shorts that lose their elasticity.
Neil tested it and found it to be good. He tested Lead Miner Terry’s version and gave it a thumbs up.
