At first I though this was a post about shotshell reloading gone wrong. You know, charge bar full of shot, no shell under it, pull the handle, [click!], pssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, 1-1/8 oz of shot all over. My buddy and I still look back at our first shotshell reloading sessions and laugh our a$$es off!
I don't know what the local club does to recover shot in the field. I use a vacuum cleaner in my reloading room. It's not quite powerful enough to suck all the shot out of the carpet. I still vacuum up a renegade pellet every now and then.
