Bagged Lead Shot is a great form of bulk lead.
Lead shot is used frequently for reloading. Reloaders know where they can acquire it.
Most of Pure Lead Products lead shot is used for counterweight and ballast purposes.
The lead shot is easy to handle in bags and can be placed precisely where needed to offset weight in another area.
For boat ballast is is very flexible. It can be used to compliment ballast that could be in rigid bricks. Shot can be moved easily if the interior of the ship/boat is modified, for example a new appliance is installed in your cabin. That can upset the balance of the boat. A bag of shot would be a nice way to balance it out.
Marine people do use lead shot for ballast.
