    Raw lead has been averaging between $.89 to $.84 per?lbs. In addition until just recently; fuel prices have been dropping. My question is what is shot selling in your area? Just purchased Eagle #8's in NE. Wi. for $38.00/bag. Thanks for any input!!

    I bought some reclaim from a skeet shooting friend a few months back, $1 a pound. This was the cleanest reclaim I had ever seen. Consistant size (7-1/2-8) well graphited and no steel or dirt.

    The best way to go is to set a "buy" price in your mind. When the price is right you go deep in shot. Then it is a sunk cost and you don't have to think about it again for a long time.

    Just bought a ton of Northwest Magnum $30/bag. What they do is mine the clubs up and down the west coast states. Then they remelt and drop the shot making new/reclaimed shot.

    Rocky, Call the Savanna gun club and buy shot/components there. I'm sure you'll be glad you made the call and it should be worth the drive. Good Luck and break em all Jeff
