    I figure 3 months before shot starts dropping but who knows. I am more interested in seeing if factory shells drop in price at any time or they hold the line. I am wondering how much shot will drop as fuel has went up so much, they might hold the increase in shipping costs over our heads and not drop the price of shot. Then again who cares, shoot if you can afford it and don't if you can't. It's really the only 2 options you have.

    Here is another interesting chart ... if the supply side keeps going up, the price will continue to fall. Bill Malcolm

    I bought 20 flats of GunClubs from Dicks for $39.30 each last Thanksgiving. Between that and flats I already had, it's enough to last me until this coming Thanksgiving -- hopefully the price of shells will have fallen by then & I can resupply.

    I hate to be a pessimist, but I'll bet that the Lead Industry has learned what the Oil Industry, and so many other's have too. You can work less and make more money by creating shortages than you can producing. I'd look for a drop in supply, and a raise in prices, very soon. I sure hope that I'm wrong.

    With our illustrious (elitist) Congress taking up Carbon Caps this week, fuel is bound to be going up also. Long past the time to rid us of them ALL! It's reactionary, and extreme, but I'm not voting for a single incumbent until they are all gone.

    doubt it.

    Where is your data that supports your statement?

    its not the industry creating the oil price problem, its the speculators in Wall street.

    Oil is a daily necessity for each and every one of us, Lead is not.
