What the heck is going on with the price of lead? Anyone know where one can buy lead shot at a reasonable price?

I am putting together a group buy of components, and shot is at about $30/bag from Dawson's. I have advised the guys to buy all they can as the raw price of lead equates to almost $29/bag.

$35+ by the beginning of spring is almost assured. Not too long ago we were over $40/bag. It may happen again.

Plan on a lot of 1 ounce wads being sold!

I`m starting to feel better about paying $27 a bag for a ton of West Coast mag shot. But what about primers and wads, they will surely go up to.

With Zero printing paper like no tomorrow and spending it faster than it's printed, we're headed for a Weimar future. Anything 'real' is going to go up, and up, and up. Your $ lost 20% of it's already weak value overnight last week.

Sad, the crimes that are being committed on this country by those beltway scoundrels.

I bought shot a week ago from our club components guy for $30.00 including tax and transportation.

I needed some 8-1/2's for .410 Sporting loads so I stopped in at the Sporting Clays range near me. Their shot was $31.00 plus tax a week ago. I walked out with one bag of 8-1/2's for $37.45 including the sales tax!

I agree, it is going to get ugly!

Dawson's is in Massillon Ohio. Mideastern Ohio. I bought 10 bags last week there and a bag was $29.50. I stopped by today to pick up a bag of 6 shot for pheasants and it was $32.OO + $1.92 TAX = $33.92 a bag. :( web site is dawsonent.com. Nice place lotsa guns to look at.

Lead is a commodity, like gold, silver, and corn. The value of commodities is tied to the value of the dollar. When the currency is deliberately debased, the dollar cost of commodities goes up. That's why gold is $1400.00 an ounce, gasoline is climbing past $88.00 a barrel.

Hang on, boys. It's going to get bumpy. The price of a couple of bags of shot is the least of our troubles.
