I am thinking about buying at least 30 bags of shot at $35 per bag (tax included). I have enough shot to last through the better part of 2012. I guess it's a "crap shoot"; due to lead being a commodity and the price fluctuates. My thinking is that with the price of fuel escalating along with China's usage of lead, it might be wise to buy. Thoughts?? Thanks. Ed

You never know with the economy headed the way it is you may need that shot to protect your gas!!

Honestly it may go down but it may not and if you can afford it I would,next time it goes up youll be happy.if it goes down buy more.

I found a guy in my area who is making shot from wheel weights. I paid $15.00 for a plastic milk jug of his shot. I did not notice any difference this past weekend when I used it.

Well, my crystal ball says shot will never, never, go below $30 a bag and will probably approach $50 everywhere. Reloading will still be popular since factory shells will also go up..

You heard it here first.

I have a two-three year supply and will buy again when the price drops to $30 or so. I try to keep a 2-4 year supply to ride out market fluctuations. My current average price is about $26/bag. It will require a hefty investment upfront but you will not lose money buying near market lows.

You should also buy factory shells when they have the $2/box rebates and stock up during sales for Top Guns and Gun Clubs.

These strategies will keep shooting at affordable as possible.

hey...prices only go up. May drop down a bit momentarily on its way to higher prices. IMO...Stock up on the tiniest dips.
