    Hello,Been making shot for a little while now and I am in need of some lead to keep building up my supplie's so here is the deal,I will make your lead into shot for you and we split the shot 50/50 you pay shipping here and I will pay the return shipping or we can make arrangements to meet if you are close to my area.I can make 7 1/2 shot and I am making it on a Stewart black max machine.Turn around time would not be very long depending on the quanity we are working with.
    Let me know if there is any interest and we can work the details out from there.
    I am located in the central Ohio area.
    Thanks Bill

    I don't think after shipping in/out of state you have much to offer. Thanks for the post though.

    There is actually a lot to offer here. Lets say you pay $20 for a bucket of wheel weights which averages 140 lbs. It costs you $18 to ship it all in 2 flat rate boxes. He makes the shot and gives you 50% which is 70 lbs. Then the 70 lbs shipped for $9. Correct me if I am wrong but, that adds up to $47 for almost 3 bags of lead, so $16 a bag roughly. Sounds like a deal to me, unless you would rather pay $50 a bag. If you look hard enough you can get wheel weights for cheaper then that. He is even offering to pay return shipping which would subtract almost $3 a 25 lb bag, so $13 a bag. This is really a god deal, take him up on it.

    I had him make some 6"s for me and I was very happy with the shot and turn around time.

    This could be a good winter time hobby. To cold to shoot? Sit around the fire and smoke lead into shot and you can keep warm also. Let us know how this venture works out. Omaha

    Is there anything special I need to do to the wheel weights before you'll take them for trade, or do you take them just the way they come off the wheels? Thanks. Garrett
