Retailers and bullet manufacturers don't set the market price on lead and copper.
The price on the commodity market shows an increase over the last year, and a lesser fall in the last quarter.

At least the flintlock shooter doesn't need primers. They're rare at any price.

Yep indeed, roll yer own. I always keep an eye out for lead. Probably got enough now to last 20 years. Got 120 lbs a few months ago at a yard sale for $1.00. Nice soft stuff. Of course wheen molding 500 grain 45-70 slugs, it goes fast. (14 to a pound)
