Lead shot makes a popular form of ballast due to its flexibility in filling shapes. Lead shot ballast can be more cost-effective than custom molds. Mayco commonly provides shot ballast packaged in our stock 25 lb bags and in custom-designed super sacks.
In 2012, 700,000 lb of Mayco lead shot was used in the Gilmerton Bridge Replacement Project in Chesapeake, VA.
Our lead shot is a great choice for ballast because of its ability to fill a space without the expense of a custom cast.
