    Yard sale or thrift store Levis or jeans pants legs. I have shot bags I filled with bagged rice, or sand and have ones with actual shot.

    I use something similar to the bank deposit money bags found on Amazon. Dalix bank bags, two for $6.29. They have six or seven packs of fake leather bank bags for less than twenty bucks

    Old Levi pants legs also work well but they are hard to sew.

    I found some freezer bags that fit well inside the money deposit bags, double bag and fill with sand. If you don't use a plastic liner really fine dust can migrate through the fabric.

    I prefer the sand for the weight, but you can actually buy plastic bead filler.

    Old guy at the club filled shot bags with, I think, polystyrene beads and boiled them till they swelled to his liking. I have several that I shoot off of. Some solid, some cushy, all light weight.

    I made some using all the shotgun primers I saved for several years. Double bagged them. Lighter than sand bags to carry and move around. Never had a primer poke through when using a bag inside another bag.
