Was advised by the local Kriegoff sp that the last shot making facility was shut down by the EPA. They were supposably fined millions of dollars for failure to comply. Anyone else heard this. It was surely news to me. Jackie B.
I was not trying to start a rumor, just ask a question, based on a local K gun repairman. If it was founded to be true I intended on setting out to buy all the lead and wheel weights I could find. Oh well, I think I will buy the wheel weights anyway. LOL Jackie B.
Jackie, It was on the NRA News a few days ago. I think somewhere in Missouri about the last lead smelting plant in the US closing. According to what I have read it shouldn't affect the production of shot or bullets. At most it produced less than 10% of the need.
Thanks everyone. I decided to buy the wheel weights anyway. Five buckets averaging over 150 lbs for twenty dollars a bucket. Hope most of them will be lead anyway. I still have a brand new Stewart shot maker that I guess I need to put to work after all I have only had it five years. LOL
