    What is scrap lead selling for in your area? With commodity lead at $2600+ per metric ton this week, I'm wondering what the local price range is.

    Thanks,

    If you can find any, 75 per pound for WW. Haven't been able to find any for some time. Most of the battery guys have bought everything they can find.
