Just wondering with the cost of a flat of good shells above the $60 mark what you can reload some practice shells for?

I would like to know how much your paying for a bag 25# of reclaimed or non- commercial manufactured shot.

If you have a price per shell or box of loaded shells along with your recipe please post as well.

At the Autumn Grand I paid $20 per 25 pound bag of reclaimed shot. This was at Tucson Trap. If the rate has dropped I will buy 10 more bags at the Spring Grand.

I go out to the shot drop zone at my club with a dust pan and broom. It takes about 20 minutes to sweep up 100 lbs of shot. Another 40 minutes at home to clean it and lube it. Total investment $10 for broom, dust pan and 1 lb of powdered graphite. HMB

No need to do it late at night. I am retrieving the lead that I deposited in the drop zone. Doing my part to keep the club clean. The best time is late afternoon after the sun has dried everything out. HMB
