    Old news and really means nothing since the vast majority of lead used is recycled.

    .
    $.45/pound at the metal recycler last weekend. Didn't have much but that was the price they gave me. I looked up the scrap rate and it's been around $.55/pound. I know people sell it on CL and eBay for $1/pound but that doesn't mean you have to buy it.
