    According to Tschetter, a typical arrangement is a 70-30 split on the sale of the lead with 70 percent going to the harvester and 30 percent going to the club. Halfway through the removal project at the Minot Gun Club this past week, Tschetter said he had recovered more than 100,000 pounds of lead and expected to reach 200,000 pounds before finishing up sometime in the first half of July.

    That would be 3.2 million 1 oz shots or 2.84 million 1 1/8 shots. Thats a bunch of shots!

    Good arrangement on the lead. Prices for lead seem to low right now and you will be able to take advantage of price increases.
    We had a recent offer of 75/25 at 0.40 per lb and decided to wait on an upswing.

    If your club needs a bid on lead Reclamation give me a call I have much better prices than 40 cents from my buyers. It is a little low right now but minimum that I sell for this spring is over 60 cents. At 40 cents your reclaimer is ripping you off, just a fact

    40 cents is a rip off.
