Is the PR shot the best around? I heard it was good. Nothing less then #3?

They have shot # 4 to # 7 but it cost a little more, about
two dollars per 10 lbs.

When you get on line you will see all the goodies they have.

I can get RSI shot local for $14 for a 10 lb bag. Is it worth the extra for he PR zinc coated shot? I have heard it is real good shot but is it that good?

When you buy steel shot always store it in a dry place and keep the shot sealed in an air tight container...Steel will get harder in time. The air oxidizes the iron and causes it to get harder. The zinc coated steel is my personal favorite for #3 and larger. I use BP's shot for smaller shot sizes. In addition when you are reloading for hunting I suggest you make your reloads in smaller quantities. That way if you take a soaking and your shot gets wet you do not loose a whole batch. The other trick is to seal your crimps with either wax/or laquer this keeps moisture and air out of the shell...The zinc coated steel is a bargin and it looks like I am going to buy me some as well.

u have to seal the primer too if u really want an air tight shell.

i only use the regular shot. it shoots just as well. but instead of an overshot card, i use a little piece of cloth (good way to recycly old holey socks) and give it a squirt of rem oil before u crimp it. ive never had a rust problem.
