So I was playing around in the back yard shooting the Gamo and using the shooting bags. Well I left them on the back porch and I guess they obsorbed a bunch of moisture bc now they are hard as a rock. I tried tapping on them with a rubber mallet but it's not breaking loose. Has anyone dealt with this? Can I dry them out and fix this or are they ruined?

I had a set do it, never went soft again. They should have a warning label stating if it remains hard for more than four hours...

Fill the next ones with plastic pellets and that wont happen again. You can get bags of them at hobby shops

My bags are filled with 7 1/2 lead shot. Heavy as heck but very stable.
