Sand or shot for speaker stands?

Does anyone out there have any experience with filling their speaker stands with either lead shot or sand? I have the B&W stands for the 805's and need to fill them immediately, and would rather get it right the first time. Muchos gracias amigos.

Sackrete Contractor Grade Fine at Home Depot is uniform and dry (they keep it inside unlike the kiddie sand) and slides right thru a flunnel ~ $4 for 50lbs. My two-column targets took 20 lbs. each and no regrets. Don't forget to stick your 805's to the top plates lest you knock them off. Has anyone tried 90 weight gear oil :-)
