    HELLO:
    we had our club championship shoot this past weekend and some of us were discussing possible alternatives to use instead of lead shot that could possibly be made cheaper. i mentioned years ago when lead was $8.00 per bag, and Vic Reinders tried split peas on skeet, and said it was to light. he said with shot going to possibly $10.00 a bag, he felt we would lose shooters if it ever went that high. one guy said how about hard rubber made into shot, another said used primers. he asked if primers could be melted down and turned into shot??? any ideas for a cheap replacement for lead?

    There is no cheap alternative. But things are looking up. The price of lead today is $1.09 a pound. HMB
