Lead Shot

Where are you guys getting your shot at? I can find it semi local for 39.50 a bag, but that's pretty steep. Anyone belong to a club that buys in bulk that would be willing to sell me a couple bags of 7.5?

Re: Lead Shot

38-40 is what it has been running around my area. Not much savings when bought in quantity.

Re: Lead Shot

$39.50 is good. I have been paying $40 to $42 a bag when we can get it.

Re: Lead Shot

If I can get a single bag for 39.50, clubs that buy by the ton have to be able to get it substantially cheaper.....

Re: Lead Shot

Scrape lead is $1.00/ lb.. Diesel is $4.00/gallon. Production costs ?? . Cash outlay vs. return ????
A friend of mine who owned a shop had to pick it up from the distributer and only profited $1.00/ bag. He only sold it in order to sell other components.
At $36.oo per bag X 80 bags = $2880 to save $80.00
This is why I love my 410.

Re: Lead Shot

Last time I re upped my supply I paid $38.50 for 25# of eagle #8 which I thought was a little steep until I started looking around other forums. People are paying anywhere from 50-55 a bag in some parts of the country. If it gets that bad around here, I'll sell my equipment and just buy factory shells.
