    Raw lead down to $0.85 per pound. Maybe we'll be able to buy shot in January for $25.00 per bag. Let's hope I'm right! Cray

    How long has it been since lead was under a quarter ?

    Think it was under fifty cents back in '09.

    It'll drop quickly, just like gas has now that oil is down to well under $90/barrel. (He said sarcastically)

    The chart seems to say the price will level off at $1.10 per pound.<BR>
    I am holding out for $30.00 per bag.

    Maybe but much doubted. Shot price is scheduled to go up around .60/bag. Manufacturers say it's because of the declining dollar value and higher price for antimony!!

    There will always BE an excuse of some kind!!

    The government has been on the war path over lead for years, you'll more likely find a EPA reg causing all the problems! or a over educated Biologist!!

    Our states Fish and Game department is FULL of them!!! And causing untold problems!

    With Eurozone unemployment over 11% this morning, and US unemployement topping 8.2% this morning, and the China Manufacturing output coming to a grinding halt, oil has decreased 22% in the last month alone and dipped under $83 a bbl today.

    I'd say there's a pretty good chance lead will come down.

    Hoping I'm right (for once :) )
