    It would be lead shot, but I totally agree with you.

    I am curious if the wax permeates the shell and gets into the powder... And why did he have shot leftover?

    He had shot left over because the wax takes up some space in each shell. Apparently the wax does not permeate into the powder.

    But shouldn't the wax ONLY fill in the voids between the shot balls? I'm not debating you, just curious whether his technique was 100% efficient or not... :)

    PS: WHAT IF you poured the molten wax directly into the shot without removing the shot from the shell? Thinking about it, maybe the cooler shot solidifies the wax before it reaches the bottom? Maybe remove HALF the shot then pour the wax in?
