    Lead has been trading between 50 and 60 cents a pound. That's about $13.75 for 25 lbs. I guess the shot makers are greedy. HMB

    The trouble is that there's lots of retailers sitting on stocks of over-priced shot that aren't willing to take a loss by dropping prices.

    Its incredibly stupid in the long run, as they are going to have to take bigger losses as the wholesale prices for shot continue to drop.

    They (and us) would be better off if they bit the bullet(sorry) and take the loss to get the prices down to the new reality. They'd move a whole lot more shot at the new prices.

    There's going to be lots of dusty stock at Sportsmans/Cabelas/Scheels at $39.99 a bag.

    50 60 cents in just the lead. It hasnt been processed which takes the price up more. I just wish the price of lead would drop below 25$
