Homemade lead shotmaker
« on: September 18, 2011, 05:47:58 PM »
I have been tinkering with making lead shot, mainly because I am cheap, but also because I like making stuff myself.
Here is mine in action

I am not getting perfectly round shot, but it is usable.
Here is a great thread that has a lot of info on this

Does anyone here make their own shot?
