    Down to $1.09 a pound today, maybe some relief in the near future.

    It's close to where it was a year ago. Just think, cheaper lead and no way to afford the fuel to get out and use it! :)

    As the world economy slows, so does demand. The dollar has also strengthened some against foreign currency. What I don't understand, though, is why at Wal-Mart are Winchester AA's twenty cents cheaper per box than Remington STS's? Some people would say that the Winchesters are better shells, plus the Remingtons are made in this region and should show cheaper shipping costs.

    Anyone in the El Paso, Texas area looking for good prices on reclaimed lead contact the club at the URL listed. We have a few thousand pounds left from our mining and are entertaining offers.

    My RCBS the Grand will load all compression formed hulls, including the HS WAA. I don't even have change settings except for the crimp start. The AA, both New style and old style are some what shorter. BRGII

    Lets see what impact, we see on the price of shot---the price of lead is down 40%, & the cost of transportation & energy is up 30%---a big 10% decline if we're lucky----don't hold your breath, waiting to see $30.00/25lb magnum shot. Hope I'm wrong. I'm too much of a skeptic for my own good.----Phil

    The jump in lead prices has taught me a good lesson. Stock up with what you need, and then some!

    I have both my 12 ga Mec 9000's set to load any hull well. AA, new or old, Remmy, Federal, both styles, Cheddites, UEE's, Rio plastic and paper, Fiocchi, Activ, Eclipse.

    My 20, 28 and 410 load any shell I can scrounge at the gun club as well with the single exception of Dian 20 ga.

    Maybe you folks should buy a MEC. LOL
