    I checked with Norwalk, Ohio Waste Materials today apr. 28th. They are paying five cents per pound for lead. Where is the price for shot coming from ? Maybe it takes a while for the manufactures to us up all the lead they purchased for a kings ransome. Shot prices should come way down in the future. Don`t buy any now unless you really need it.

    Lead closed today on the open market at 58 cents a pound. Ohio waste is paying less than 1/10 the going price. HMB

    Come on hmb, you know he is talking scrap lead. Last I heard scrap lead could be purchased from scrap yards for about 15 cents/lb., that may have changed. That would be 10 cents profit at that rate. What they pay 5 cents for is a long way from what is loaded into the gun.

    The producer price (newly mined/processed lead) was 87 cents per pound on Monday. That equates to $21.50 per bag for the lead. It looks like shot will not be going below $20 per bag. Our club purchased some from Steve Smith for $21.50 a bag. Steve is sitting on a bunch betting that the price will go up mid-summer.
