Have you noticed that Lead has increased in price by 100% during the past 6 months? Market price now is about $1.60/lb. Even the local scrap yard here wants about $.60/lb. That's not good news for bullet swagers !!

Yeh... Re: Price of Lead

War is paid for with inflation. Since 1900 the government with the cooperation of the bankers have tried to "cut out" the down side of the business cycle. Only "up." Inflation. When it crashes, and it always does someday, it will be HUGE. For now, paper is the last thing to hold, except for the briefest of times. Rent, etc. "Hard assets" are the way to go. Fuel. How long ago was gasoline ONLY $1.50 a gallon. Not to mention heating oil, nat. gas, propane. Land? And yes, if your hobby involves shooting... Remember when Uncle Sam would sell you a springfield with walnut stock for $18.50, REA to your front porch and .30/'06 surplus ammo was $0.01 per round with the gun... Like the comic says, "Penny candy is coming back. Now it will cost $0.25..." Before long that will be $0.50... luck to us all...

If you were local I would give you a couple of hundred lbs. I dropped of close to 3 tons a few years back to the local lead wire people. Lead I have.
