    As of today raw lead closed at $.73/metric ton. I was at Recob's today, there was a sign Lawrence Mag. $34.95/ bag. I asked sales person about this, I stated the last time I checked it was going down and at $.81/mlbs. Sale's person stated they are also wathching and said, "shot is not moving". I saw thread where someone was either buying or selling Lawrence shot for in the $30.00 range.

    Less than 60 days ago, the price was around $1.05. Based on past trends, it should get down to .60 cents or less a lb. It takes some time for the change in price to work through the system. If the available lead stocks keep climbing, the price should keep going down. Shot prices will fall significantly and then the price of ammunition will fall as well. IMHO Bill Malcolm

    I have been spending a fair amount of money every year buying components from Recob's at prices that seem a bit too robust relative to the market trend for lead as well as what vendors in other areas are charging. Can anyone advise the name of other suppliers that service the Greater Chicagoland area that might be more economical?

    If you can afford to wait don't buy any for around a month. Significant price decrease is in the wind!!

    Price decrease sounds good to me as well. But I am thinking it will be at the end of summer to buy in large amounts. That is if the price stays at or below 60 cents a pounds for the summer. Break-em all. Jeff
