This is 50 lbs (2 bags at 25 pounds each) of raw reclaimed lead that has not been washed or air cleaned and is dirtier than our normal air cleaned shot. It is also great for making scuba weights, for use as ballast weight or a cheap lead source for other projects. Please be aware that these BB's may still have a small amount of foreign objects, i.e. pebbles or dirt in it. The bag will contain a mix of all sizes - mainly around 7.5 and 8. Our reclaimed lead averages about 5% Antimony Lead. Bulk orders of this product are available. This is the best value for inexpensive ballast weight.
Each bag measures approximately 10" x 5" x 2"
Approximate Pounds per cubic foot: 350 - 380 pounds
Pounds per cubic inch: +/- .20-.22 pounds

Easy to order and the product was delivered in no time at all.
Very clean shot, looked new even though it said reclaimed. Free shipping advertised but then you get an email that says 10-15 days so I paid $12.00 extra for 2 day shipping, kind of disappointing
I used this to level my 42' sailboat which had a 2 or three degree list to starboard. I had a space with only a couple inches of vertical clearance and these bags fit in perfectly. I put off doing this for years because lead was so expensive, but this stuff is way cheaper than clean lead and is perfect for this purpose.
It arrived exactly as described, shot from ranges that had been sifted out and bagged. This leaves pebbles the same size or smaller, silt, steel shot, etc. so be prepared for that if you're buying this to melt. In the end, I was able to recover about 85% by weight in lead by melting into ingots. Shot like this is usually about 5% antimony at most, and little if any other additives. I think in the future I may just go ahead and buy the already washed and graphited shot or ingots as the yield by weight will be higher enough to make up for the price difference. Prompt shipping and competitive price, will definitely order from here again. The only way to do better on lead price is to also do the recovery/scrapping work yourself.
Very well packaged, shipped fast and was exactly as described. Pleased with my purchase!
The lead came very fast and was packed very well where it wouldn’t get damaged.
Fastest shipping great price good politeness will be back for more.
Was very pleased with the service.
The two 25 lb bags fit in the Caldwell FCX lead sled perfectly. A little dust but not too much.
