And just as though to prove this is the right way to do it - the mixer just went on sale

It can be shot up. I bought 3 tons of Mexican shot back in the early 80's. Me and a bunch of buddies went in together and bought around 12 tons that came out to $4.00 per bag. It took me 15 years to shoot it up, but I did.

Wow !!
How long did it take to go through the first 3 tons ?
If I can milk it out for 15 years that should be about enough, be getting to old

Don't those work BETTER if one sprays Bedliner inside before using ?.
Rubber lined drums are better than steel . The outfit whom used to harvest our old range shot ,had Rhino liner sprayed in theirs . Even a two part epoxy coating would go a long way but bed liner has encapsulated polybinders in it's formulas .

All kinds of brands LineX Hercules RustOleum Armorthane . Not only cushions and quiets but saves on the metal abrasion .

Once I do this shot I'll never use the mixer for shot again
I do have a sidewalk and patio repair I'd like to do - then sell it
Can't imagine that bed-liner and concrete would take well to each other
