I do not reload so sorry for my ignorant questions:

Where can I buy lead shots to weigh down a shooting sled? What would be the best size? Do the shots come in durable enough bags that can be handled safely (and not busted at the seams :)) ? Or will I need to provide the bags? I live in the S/SE Houston area and would like to know the nearby names of the dealers. Thanks!

Carters Country has 25# bags of lead shot for $35 and has it in most sizes. Bags are fairly durable but you could put it in another just to be safe. Canvas coin money bags work well. Get them from the bank or I might have some here.

You can also contact Carter's Country and ask them about the lead they pull up from the Shotgun range and resale back to companies that melt it down for other uses, they may give it to you pretty cheap. I also know Ace Hardware can order 3lb ingots of lead.
