Construction style sand bags. Around 40lbs. Also use bumper plates when going heavier.

2 25lb bags of lead shot. They come in handy when sighting in big boomers, too.

The lead shot might be good for sighting in, but can you eat it when you get hungry like the sun flower seeds? Point to the seeds. :D

Ammo in ammo cans wrapped in beach towels...

It was what I could put my hands on fast one day when I found a min to go on my first weighted pack hike and it worked so well I haven’t felt the need to change it.

I like wood pellets like a few other folks have suggested. Good volume, easy to clean up if the bag tears, and I'm not baiting critters into my pack.

Now that it's winter and I can find them, I'm on the pellet train also. 5.50 per 40lb bag and 80lbs of pellets is not nearly as hard on my pack frame as 80lbs of plates.
