The old style shot bags made of material rather than the new shot bags. You can use the newer bags but you need a plastic liner inside such as small bathroom trash bags as sand can seep out thru the mesh.

Yoda--Good idea on the spent primers. Never thought of that.

These aren't free, but they aren't exactly expensive either. They are strong, nice and clean(with no lead residue). We bought a bag of dry playground sand (kept indooors) at Menards. We filled them, then sewed and Gorilla glued the ends shut. They have been really helpful. Good luck.

Spent primers do not sound like a good filler (nasty "dust") - but better than active ones.

Best filler I found was plastic resin pellets. Light and clean. One of the benefits of working in the injection molding business.

Airsoft BB's should work too but will cost you some money.
