    Thats a super score! Makes you wonder if there was a death or a divorce in the family.

    When I started loading shotgun shells about 1974, the best price I ever paid for a 25# bag of shot (at the store) was $6.75 or so IIRC. You got an unbelievably good price for it, even if the sizes are mixed or whatever. I would almost come to Oregon myself to get it for that kind of price! Ya done good, Pilgrim, ya done real good!

    Thats the kind of deal that you come across every once in a great while. That keeps a smile on your face from ear to ear all the way home.

    I bought the shot from an elderly gentleman that said he got out of reloading some time ago.
    He said he was glad someone finally took it off his hands........dale

    Scored some free shot today. Seems that at the trap range the ants carry it out of the ground when they dig their tunnels. They lay it out around the entrance in a 3 to 4 foot circle. It's only 1/8" deep but two mounds yielded 14-1/2 pounds. I just have to clean it up a little. Using it for Cowboy Action so it doesn't matter if it's deformed. Gotta go back when I have more daylight.
