    See above-said “unfired” shells.

    Of the videos I watched, they were recovering sunk fired shells with their magnets, of course if it was an unfired shell, it would have to be steel. Lead or Bismuth would be too heavy to lift with just the steel in the primer.

    Yup, talking about the video michiganlouie referenced, unfired shells would have to be steel shot to be drug up, if at all.

    I am very interested in getting into this someday. Any suggestions on where to shop for a magnet rig?

    go to bridge on fox creek alter road. Go to mariner park, ford park any of the smaller parks along the river starting in Grosse Pointe going down to belle isle. I almost guarantee you will get a gun or knife in fox creek. It would not shock me if you got three guns.

    Amazon will probably run Black Friday sales...got mine, a 600 pounder for less than 20$ delivered. All you'll need is some good rope.
