We often have people contract amounts with us, and take scattered deliveries. Who knows?
I am pretty sure we are the only lead shot maker who doesn't raise & lower prices on short term market trends. We have been selling lead shot for about 3 years now, and our prices remain unchanged, so that we could offer folks a steady price. Even tho lead went up to 1.40 during that time, and dropped to .78 cents, we kept our prices the same, so that people would know what to expect.
I was constantly being told that other Shot makers were raising & lowering prices as the markets changed. I assumed this to be true.
I have come to the conclusion that I am destined to only shoot new as the cost to have items shipped to where I am makes reloading cost prohibitive. I am up for suggestions! I live in South Florida ....lots of sun...nice shooting year round...PITA to get things shipped to you STATE!
