Posted here as am hopeful someone may be willing to spare a few lbs of #9 lead shot as I am making pistol shot shells suitable for rats and other pests at close range. 4lbs would last me a long time. Happy to pay cash or trade something you may need. I have a wide variety of pistol and rifle reloading components.

PM me with offers. Thanks.

Buy a box of any #9 loads, any gauge. Take a them apart and you will have more than you can shoot.That is usually cheaper than shipping any to you.

Also, take note on the shot size and how it kills snakes and large rats. Often, a larger size shot will penetrate better.

I cannot PM you as you are new/not enough posts to receive private messages. Your offer is very generous and I appreciate it.

Everyone is new at some point, After you have been here a while, I will contact you via pm and we can work something out.

Thanks

That’s what I did, but bought Rio #12s.

This is good advice.
