Shot question???

Greetings All:
Might anyone be able to give me an estimate on how many 12 ga. shot shells one could reload from a 25 lb bag of either #4 or #6 shot?? loads will be
1 1/8th oz loads. Is there a standard table available anywhere for determining this??
THANKS in advance for your help.

Regards: Lastcast, Ranger Recon, Class of 67.

355.5 if my calculations are correct. 25 pounds X 16 ounces to the pound / 1.125 (1 1/8 oz)

This is a pretty simple elementary school story problem. 16 ounces in a pound. How many 1 1/8 ounces in a pound? 25 pounds in a bag. Think about it and figure it out.

Approximately 356 by my math.
25 pounds = 400 ounces divided by 1.125 = 355.555556
