Any good prices on lead?In R.I I just called a gun shop he wanted $46 a bag!Is he nuts or wat!They cant take your guns but they can make shooting unaffordible.Wen is the madness going to stop?Reloading is almost not worth it anymore.
I've been holding out for lower prices but had to take the plunge this weekend and bought 3 bags at Guns Unlimited in Omaha for $33 per bag. I figure I need another 9 to get my Boys through the High School trap season, so based on what everyone's paying and the word that it's not going to get cheaper perhaps I should go back and pickup the other 9 I need.
The technology to replace lead in batteries is here. Just a matter of time like wheel weights.
For anyone interested check out the world stock pile of lead on Kitco metals. largest supply on hand in years and years. Prices should never rise when there is abundant stock. Lead has been the exception. I think a dramatic inventory/price correction will be soon at hand. Its predicted by most experts now.
Raw lead prices have actually dropped nearly 10% in the last week or so. That's “potentially” good news for people buying shot either by the bag or by the ton. Closely watching the last roller coaster ride in the lead market, we saw some interesting things occur. The drop in lead shot prices were: A) slower to finally reach the bottom last summer/fall than we thought they would, and B) did not go as low per bag as many people predicted or even hoped it would. Does this trend remind you of, let’s say gasoline maybe?
A few years back,they took the lead out of gasoline. That should of made gas cheaper, right! What did they do with all the surplus lead from the gasoline? Being a leftover waste product,lead should be dam near free,right? O well they're gonna get us comming & going! Clyde D
using an inflation calculator, $5 in '73 now costs $25. connies can ship northwest for $30 a bag and gamaliels can ship lawrence for $38 a bag. what's up with that? is lawrence that much better? thanks
