“invest in lead... your neighbor has food.”
hopedieslast - Only do the above if you want to die.
Hmmmm ... envy, robbery, and murder.
What else ya got up your sleeve?
I know you are probably speaking of factory made ammo, but scrap lead for casting your own bullets is getting harder and harder to find. This is mostly because of the EPA’s war on lead and the replacement of lead tire weights with steel and zinc wheel weights.
It has gotten to the point where I am now building myself a lead trap to use behind my targets so that I can reuse the lead from my bullets. At the current $.43 a pound it is probably not really worth the effort, but it saves me having to make more frequent trips to the metal recyclers. Where I go I basically crawl into a big bin with a small garden shovel and fill up 5 gallon buckets.
The bin has everything from tire weights to scrapped batteries with dangerous lead oxide powder on everything. Don't forget your respirator and don't wash your clothes in the family washing machine. It is filthy and dangerous. I keep the same set of coveralls in a heavy plastic bag to use on my trips to the scrap yard and for nothing else.
