    Actually it's a serious question, can you buy wet sand? Wouldn't you buy it dry and be expected to add your own water?

    Depending on where you buy it, it'll be wet. Big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes leave their sand outside year round, usually exposed. So it'll often be damp when you buy it. Given it's intended use in building or gardening it's not usually important. Play sand is usually cleaned up, and dry for health reasons, but seems to cost a bit more. Of course, wet sand weighs more than dry sand, so the real question is, was the bag labelled based on wet or dry weight as the actual physical amount of sand will vary somewhat. That's also why the size of the grains matters. Hence my listing important variants to allow people to determine a more accurate measure.

    Of course, I also failed to take settling and compaction into consideration, which will over time cause a variance in fullness. :D

    It's true isn't it. I don't do building stuff and I filled my punch bag base with water which works perfectly well. I just can't imagine why you'd want to pay for wet sand which surely must be more expensive than dry sand if sold by weight!

    Dry sand flows better than wet sand.

    There's an idea. Kick boulders. If you do it right, the boulders will become rocks. Then gravel. Then sand.
    Then you can put the sand in the base of the bob central dummy.
