    WOW !!! That is certainly getting right down there. I really hope it makes a difference in new ammo prices as well as reloading. The ammo manufacturers said it was raw material prices and freight costs that drove the price way up....now both are way down...let's see if new prices reflect the new low prices.....Uncle Sam, Pa.

    Hey Palidin, in 04/05 shot was selling at $15/17 per 25# and lead was at $.40/45 per lb. and gas was higher than now in west Pa. No, if past history shows that new shells, primers, and wads won't decrease in price unless this global economy starts deflation like incomes have for most consumers...Mike

    At 15.00 a bag for hard shot just might get the shooting put in a higher gear. With the people out of work and many more jobs are on the line I don't think many shooters are going to be at it very heavy.

    Many stores are still gouging people on prices.

    I still don't see how the bailout is going to help the autolmakers. We may give them money to pay the bills for a couple of months but that is not going to get people to buy cars. Jobs or no jobs its two risky. B12
