    We pay CASH for used reloading equipment, brass, and components. We also buy factory ammo, full and partial boxes.

    I picked up 8 lbs of lead from under the plate targets last time I went to the range. i'm going to try to get in the habit of picking up every time I go.

    Check out estate sales on Auctionzip. Earlier this month Sohn's in Evansville had a sale that featured 2000 lbs of lead ingots. Most came from Midway usa, it sold for an average price of 55 cents a pound.
    Usually estate sales are discussed here on INGO,your all knowing,all flowing,and all moaning information station.

    OH, THERE IS A SALE JUNE 5TH, BLUFFTON , WITH LEAD.
    see YA there!

    Check some of the scrap yards. I bought 200 lbs in kokomo a month ago for 30 cents a pound. I'm not sure how appropriate it would be for bullets. I will use it for scuba weights. It seems kind of soft

    Craigs list has lead, now and again, I get mine from tire shops and then clean and blend into ingots. Then the clean ingot go to the smelt pot on bullet making days.

    Scrounged is always cheaper but if you want clean reliable ingots try Cast Boolits website. Plenty of guys selling those in Swappin and sellin.

    Yeah, It just bugs me to pay for shipping! I think I can turn the scrounged lead into clean reliable ingots if I flux it enough.
