    77 cents a pound on the market.

    What is a bag of shot going for lately? Anybody seeing prices in the high 20's yet? or is it still in the high 30's-40's for a bag.

    Shyda's had it for $29.95 for one week. That’s the lowest price I've seen so far.

    While places have it in stock they will be hard for prices to come down. However price will probably hit in the real low 20's before spring at many places. Many place willl not even take lead right now.

    I recently sold a gentlman 100 lbs. in N.Y. from where I am in Illinois. I threw in an extra 5-6 lbs. and sent it flat rate usps which has a max. of 70 lbs. one box made and the other box got damaged and he only got one bag and a taped up box and a note saying "damaged in shipment. How the heck do you lose a 25 lb. bag of shot and anothet partial bag. All my life I have been convinced USPS people are trained to deny any responsibility for anything that goes wrong. Mind you these boxes were very well taped and tied with rope in all directions. I went to my P. O. and talked to the same guy I handed the boxes off to personally and his comment was I should have insured them. Well, why should I pay for insurance, that was never mentioned in the first place, so they do do their job. Flat Rate shipping boxes come from the P. O. no charge but aren't really heavy enough for 70 lbs. so consequently the extra shipping tape and rope and a "tough shit" when I tried to trace it as did the buyer.

    PS.: I am reimbursing the buyer as he bought it in good faith and I took his money in good faith.
