    From what I've seen, this pricing (or close to it) has been there pickup price for sometime.

    On the East Coast, Gamaliel during the same time period that I have been watching, has been selling shot for $37.50.

    I'm sure there is market reasons for this.

    Sure. The market reason is that Connie is a whole lot closer to where the lead comes from than Gamaliel is. Freight = $$$.

    Does Connie's Components handle West Coast brand or is it Northwest brand of shot? If it is Northwest brand then I believe it is reclaimed shot. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble

    It is Northwest and is made from reclaimed shot and other lead that is melted down and repoured and is as new shot.

    There's your answer, hoosier daddy, Connie's Components sells new shot made from reclaimed shot. At that price, I Wish it was available in my part of the country in southern Michigan. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble
