It seems like sportsman seem to have a good grasp on the possible uses of pure lead for ammo, sinkers, etc. I just wanted throw a question out there to get some feedback. I have approximately 1200 pounds of pure lead bricks. My buddy ask me if I ever thought about selling it and I told him not right now but maybe someday. Just curious, Does anyone out there have any idea what 1200 pounds of pure lead would be worth? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Such failure.

Is it high grade pure shit or some cheap mexican?

The .gov is banning lead for ammo and fishing soon due to it being toxic and making everything go to steel.

Do you know how much .22lr you could make with that?

Also, we don't talk about technical stuff in GD.

We mainly just sit around and argue about really stupid shit.

Is that enough to make a Zeppelin?

Hell yes we do! We don't talk about it accurately, but a GD tech discussion is worth a couple of timeouts and a ban any day of the week!



Shotgun for home defense, 5.56 doesn't penetrate sheetrock, etc. Shenanigans abound!

This is the first post that I've read by a 16er. Honestly I thought that it would be different. Lead is under 1 per pound so you have maybe 900 dollars worth. You will get killed in shipping unless you sell locally.
Link Posted: 1/1/2016 10:16:11 PM EDT
Wow, a 16er.  Anyhow, it's about .8118 cents per pound.
Link Posted: 1/1/2016 10:19:21 PM EDT
Fuck all that noise, trade it for 10 pounds of frozen crab.....thank me later.



If you're really into driving a hard bargain, go for the train set too.

The heavy discussions are best left to the tech forums.

Ok thanks. Most of that was helpful, well maybe about 10% of that was helpful. The rest quite amusing. I work with radiation and just happened to get saddled with getting rid of all the extra lead bricks that weren't needed so I just stacked them up in the garage. Thanks for the feedback.

The local Halibut Charters make sinkers out of lead (big ones and lots of them, but I think the shipping would kick your ass.
