    It might be helpfull to relieve the demand for lead thus driving down the inflated prices.

    That would be great for lead users, the prices may come down. I read in the paper that they are starting to make lead free batteries for cars too. Maybe the future isnt so bleak after all. Harry

    I know it sounds good, but after they get lead out of car wheels and batteries. How long do you think it will be before they make the same efforts to take the lead out of ammunition which will include all shotguns, rifles and handguns?????

    Just a thought.

    Dear NJ BOB,
    Supply & Demand market??? You need two suppliers of lead shot before the economic principle will work. Their is only one shot supplier left in the US.....Metalico.....Eagle shot is from Peru. The War has begun and we are in the middle. Law.(Metallico) shot was 48/dealer cost last week. Eagle was approx. 33. I vote for the offshore suppier, Eagle. ...Jet Boat Bill

    Unfortunately I believe China is buying all the lead they can get their hands on, don't think we will see lower lead prices, only higher

    ok lead free wheel weights, lead free battery? How does this lower the price. Loosing 2 major markets, need to make their proffits. geez even the military is going lead free, another huge market going. theres nothing to stop the increasing prices! what we need is increasing paychecks....I have not had a raise in 6 years, its get what I get or loose it to some one half my age at half my salery????? what to do.
