    Our club threw 2 million targets (80,000 rounds)last year, about the same as in previous years. It's been ten years since we recovered lead, 20 million targets, about 20 million ounces of lead = 1,250,000 pounds of lead. It's a clean and level shot fall area, no trees, so we should recover at least 75% = 938,000 pounds. We'll get 50% of the scrap value, about $375,00 at today's prices.

    $375,000 / $3 per round = 123,000 free rounds

    Yee Haw, free targets for all members for a 18 months.

    then you should get your lead magnet out there right now and pick up all that "gold"... ya never know if your field might cause the earth to spin out of it's correct orbit prior to the free shooting of all of those "free" rounds.. maybe the EPA will investigate the pollution you have caused and fine your club three million zylots and send you all to non-shooting hades...

    LOL of course
