Have you noticed the past several months that the cost of “shot” has skyrocketed? So what’s up with that? I wish I could answer that question and would like to hear what perception other shot-gunners may have.
So is it the “war”, or maybe the “tree huggers” causing the rise in lead prices?
Unless the military is using Gilding Metal components as opposed to leaded bullets for the war effort, more than likely that is a contributing factor.
Or could it be the nature lovers whom are concerned with lead poisoning of all wildlife’s animals?
Maybe the lead manufacturer’s are driving up prices in fear of lead shot be replaced with non-toxic shot and are wanting to cash in before the plunge?
I’m not sure of the reasoning but $40.00+ for a 25 pound bag of lead shot is absolutely ridiculous! It kind of takes the fun out of reloading.
What are you paying for shot in your part of the world?
