    I have a chance to buy what I feel is a large quantity of linotype in ignots, about a ton. Price is $1.00 a pound. I would use it to alloy with dead soft lead to come up with Lyman #2/Hardball for centerfire bullets. What do you think of that price, it is local to me near Toledo Oh. Bill

    If I had the opportunity, I'd buy all I could at that price.

    The hot rumor at the San Antonio Gun Club today is the local supplier for Lawrence shot has dropped the price to $41.99 per bag. We may need to rethink our shot-making plans. Just a thought. Ron

    From what I understand, that is when you buy 40,000 lbs, and if you bought in that kind of quantity I am sure you could get a pretty big discount, correct me if I am wrong please. I know a lot of bullet casters that would be jumping all over that, especially if it were already made into ingots, that cuts out a lot of your time spent over your smelting set up. Just my $0.02 on that.

    ltl=less then truck load(40,000lbs) $.67 per pound
    tl=truck load(40,000lbs) $.89 per pound

    when selling scrap, the more you bring in the more you get for it.

    I already have several hundred pounds of dead soft lead on hand plus about four hundred of wheel weights. I would use the linotype to juice up the lead or wheel weights to cast bullets not to make shot. The linotype is just as it was used in the printing industry years ago and not little pound ingots. I also have a line on more or less a thousand more pounds of sheet lead from a radiology suite that will go for just over what the man can get for hauling it to town to the scrap yard. I will be set for life I think. Bill
