    .75 cent per pound. About 500 pounds available at the moment.
    Average hardness is about 11bn.

    These are from reclaimed bullets. I use it for casting pistol bullets.

    How heavy are your pigs, 1 pound? Do you know what it costs to ship 10 pounds? I'm in Cave Junction 35 miles SW of Grants Pass.
    Thanks,
    Gabby

    Really test their "If it fits, it ships" motto.:)

    I've mailed lead cast bullets and brass. Flat rate boxes are awsome. My ingots are about 2x2 , so it's just a matter of fitting them in. There is a weight limit. Medium size full might come close.

    Small flat rate will only hold six ingots. With some wasted space. Would need to cast a different style ingot to maximize space. Going to pick up some medium flat rate boxes today. This has spiked my interest.

    Juft FYI; USPS just raised their rates significantly a couple weeks ago. The online price for the small box is now $6.10. I don't remember what the others are, but they went up too.

    Oh, by the way, good price for lead ingots!

    How do you want your payment?
    Will a money order do you?
