That's right you have only me to thank for falling shot prices and if my prediction is correct it will go below $5.25 for 25#. You heard it here first. Last fall when shot was at $42 bucks I bought a shot maker and went into business. I have made 1 1/2 tons of shot and had a ball doing it. My net cost is just about $5.25. I told my friends then that shot would plummit just to keep me from coming out ahead of just one deal in my life.
Enjoy your low prices and speak kindly of me!!

But…does your $5.25 include the legacy costs of the thousands of retired, aging, and now medically dependent former production employees?

You may be entitled to 16.2 (give or take) billions of dollars!

I had the same luck. A friend and I went together on a shotmaker last fall and made a lot of shot. Shot most of it and sold some of it. We saved a bunch of money doing it, but the week after we bought the shotmaker, lead prices started to drop. But I still think I have less in input costs than I would going out and buying shot. My time not included of course. Josh

Jin Porter,

.....let's see....1.5 tons = 3000 lbs. / 25lbs. = 120 bags of shot.


120 bags of shot @ $5.25 = $630.00

the question is.......did you pay your income tax on this money???????

or....should you have paid the taxes on the realized savings of the shot priced @ $42.00 per bag????? $42.00 - $5.25 = $36.75 x 120 bags of shot = $4410.00.....

anyway you look at it, you should have spread the wealth around.....I'm sure everyone on this site would like to have their share, but I'll settle for a box of shells.

I bought a little 2 dripper shot maker about 15+ yrs ago,
never used the thing until shot went to over $40.
had about 1/2 ton of sheet lead and linotype i bought
for less than .25 cents lb. years ago as well.
i made a lot of shot with that little unit,got me thru the rough times.
