    With international raw lead now at $.43/lb, that's about where it was five years ago. A bag of shot should be costing us under $15, but obviously it isn't. Here in Florida at Silver Dollar it is $40.

    What's the price where you are?

    What do you see the future price of lead to be?

    For clubs that use Gamaliel's (a number in Florida)....

    Gamaliel Shooting Supply

    Lawrence Brand Magnum Shot - $29.50 (price for the last 35 days)

    During the summer they were charging $40+

    I imagine some clubs are caught with a pallet(s) of lead purchased in the high 30's.

    Some clubs may have to take a hit on lead they purchased during the summer, as prices have dropped dramatically and should go lower.

    I bought shot two weeks ago for $28.50, no sales tax. Some retail stores face a problem. They are sitting on inventory that costs them too much. They want to get rid of the $40 shot before they buy more inventory at the current low price. Some will be forced to sell the shot inventory at a loss but they will hold out as long as possible. Business decisions can become complicated.

    Well Pat sinces its the end of the year they might as well take the hit and then get the rightoff being tax time is comming up. The only way I see them comming out of it is to sell at todays market as quick as they can because its going to keep falling. I said last summer these greety non sporting people that own sporting good stores for just the money are going to get stuck with a lot of inventory. Here it is. B12

    As the price of shot continues to drop, at what price will you "stock up" with as much as you can afford to buy? Just how low do you expect it to get?
