For those of you who make your own lead shot; is it a PITA or an enjoyable pass time? The videos online make it look somewhat interesting and not too difficult. I have a bunch of lead & a deep mechanical background and considering making my own shot. Looking for experienced first hand feedback.
Any input appreciated, thanks in advance...

Doggai had a system for making shot that was semi-industrial in size and scope. Haven't seen John post in a while and hope he is okay. He offered the system to anyone who would pick it up. He also sold off his guns. Gil

I can get 50 lbs of lead shot for $85.00 delivered from Gamaliel . I dont think you could make it for that unless you have a source for free clean lead. I dont want to discourage any one from trying something new. I looked at this and I had to consider the health risk to me from lead fumes and to the dogs from anti freeze.
