Post Recycling Shot
From William Stanhope Lovell's Personal Narrative of Events, from 1799 to 1815:

"As late as the year 1801, the greater part of the garrison was still covered with shot and broken shells, thrown by the Spaniards at that period [siege of Gibraltar]. They have since been collected, and sold to be melted down for various purposes, some probably to be again converted into missiles of destruction."

I have the honour to be, &c.
