    I prefer to shoot lead, but steel has been steady in it's price of $1 a pound in a finished product for years. And our club has recipes and wads now (members only, sorry). Wads are 2 cents per. The rest of the components are about the same price as a lead shell.

    A little more speed for yardage is appropriate, but it doesn't take that much.

    The one sure way lead will come down is if I invest in lead futures. This method has worked 100% in past ventures.

    If you make your own lead shot to reload you can probably save $25.00 a bag with the price of lead shot at $30.00 a bag today. This means you can make 25lbs of shot for less than $5.00 by buying a shotmaker, melting car wheel weights into ingots, then melt the ingots in the shotmaker to make the shot.If you are interested in making your own shot, as I do, call Jim Stewart at 256-587-0107 and he will give you all the details you need.

    Jerry,

    no offense, but could you get your broker on the line immediately? It would sure help the rest of us! :eek:)

    Will do Shotgunfun. Please send me a check in the amount you want me to gamble (I meant invest) and I'll invest it. Then we'll sit back and watch the prices. I'll be glad to split the losses/profit once we factor out your initial investment:)

    Remember this is as fool proof as it gets.

    Cheers,
    Jerry
