I think we were shooting bulk target winchester or federal stuff that day and like everyone else we cycled them into the dirt and never thought about them again. Cheap target loads can be had for cents a round...hardly any savings to be had hand loading them and when you factor your time in it's debatable whether it's worth it - course one shot could go 1300fps and the next 1100 with the stuff you grab off the shelves...but sometimes it's nice to have an excuse for the ones that get away:)
Plus like I said, they never clean that place. Each station gets several shooters a day, and those shells have been building up no joke for over a year. The only time the pile ever shrinks is if some of the shells get dragged off by the snow plow when they open stations up in the winter.
