Shot Bags - Lead or Steel?

Home > Education > Metalworking FAQs > Metalworking Tools FAQs > Shot Bags - Lead or Steel?

When going to buy shot for the forming bags I found that lead shot is harder to find that steel shot. Do you have a preference?

The Tin Man Respondeth:

I like the lead. I know folks jump when I say that, but the lead doesn't rust and clump in humid weather, and the lead is more dead.
