    I have been watching Kitco Metals, noticed lead stocks are the highest ever. Price of lead has come down some also. Have any of you noticed any reduction on new shot and what area of USA.

    If you think the price of lead is high now, imagine a couple more years when everyone in India has a new car. Now is the good ol days when shot was only $30/bag.

    Jerry's correct, just wait until India (and the rest of the world) moves from it's 3rd World status.

    I started buying and storing extra shot a few years ago and presently have more than enough to last 13.3 years @ 15k rounds per year. The highest I paid is $22.50 per with an average cost of approx. $18.00 per.

    Anyway, my point is: Buy it now and buy some extra as your wallet permits. Should you quit reloading, sell it at a profit.

    The Rock is correct. Please stop encouraging others to start hoarding the damn stuff, or that will surely drive it out of sight.

    USA recycles nearly all it car batteries. Nasty work doing that. Neither India nor China do that....yet.

    I don't think people will hoard at $30+ a bag. They will just stop buying.
