I drop nice clean reclaimed shot for my 1 1/8 oz practice loads. Don't really care if they end up being +/- a few 10's of an oz. They fill the shot cup and give me nice crips, and they work as well or even a little better than the cheap promo loads out there.
No I've never weighed them, but do weigh my powder drop at the beginning of each new jug.
Just did so yesterday. Reclaimed weighed the same as Eagle 7&1/2's. GEG. Note: Reclaimed is so good you have to look hard to identify it as reclaimed. Mining done by Mike McNeely of Double Adobe, Az. GEG.
Wander, I just bought 1100 pounds from down in Fla that I found out that came from North Carolina. A lot of it is flat sided, I don't know if it makes a difference but I wouldn't have driven all the way down there to get it if I had known. You can definitely tell the difference. Jackie B.
Well I tried some reclaimed shot and I have dicovered some interesting facts....such as patterns are tighter ....lighter loads dropped by at least a eighth of an oz.however the crimps still looked the same....sometimes wont cycle a beretta 391 like red dot ..........and you can still miss a hard left with it!!!!
Biggun4fun.sometimes those flat shot will"blister" those hard lefts. However, please be careful with that reddot load in a 391. If that aint so. GRITS AINT GROCERIES, EGGS AINT POULTRIES...AND MONA LISA WAS A MAN. Stroker
