Precision Matters.

All of our shot bags are built to within 0.1 ounces. For special projects or applications, we can guarantee a ± 0.1 oz tolerance.

Air & Space

Organizations like NASA trust Lowing Products’ ballast bags for stress testing, calibration, and counterbalance applications. A combination of extra durable CORDURA fabric and a stainless filling provides a long-lasting solution for the aeronautic and aircraft industries.

Quality Checks

Need reliably precise weight? Each of our stainless steel ballast bags are within 0.1 ounces of their stated weight, making them well-suited for industrial weight testing. For special projects or applications, we can guarantee ± 0.001 ounce tolerance or construct custom bags to suit your needs.


Trade in your sandbags for a simpler solution. Shot bags made with a stainless filling are less messy than sand and our extra durable CORDURA fabric won’t tear — which means you can use them far beyond your current shoot.

Auto & Transport

For stress testing, calibration, and counterbalance applications, Tier 1 automotive suppliers use Lowing Products’ ballast bags. A combination of extra durable CORDURA fabric and a stainless filling provides a long-lasting solution for the automotive and transportation industries.

Unparalled Quality Stainless Steel Shot Bags

409 Shot Bag Series

The 409-Series range of stainless contains an alloy of carbon steel and chromium. This is often referred to as “magnetic stainless steel” since it can be picked up with a magnet. This alloy will help you production costs, while still providing a corrosion-resistant stainless steel for harsh environments.

304 Shot Bag Series

If corrosion is an issue, it’s best to go with the 304-Series. While it’s at a higher cost point, the 304-Series Stainless is most resistant to corrosive elements, such as salt water. In addition, the alloy in the 304-Series contains more non-magnetizable metals than the 409-Series, meaning it cannot be moved by magnetic force and will not hold a magnetic field.
