    Hey all,

    I am making cannon ball sinkers.

    I am not selling the raw lead.

    I have the following sizes. 1 oz, 2 oz, 3 oz, 4 oz, 5 oz, 6 oz, 8 oz, 10 oz, 12 oz and 16 oz

    I am charging $.15 - $.20 per oz depending on quantity.

    Where are you sourcing your lead from?

    This particular batch was from a metal broker in Tigard. I am always on the hunt for cheap lead.

    Welcome, glad you took my advice! Now all you need to do is put an ad up in the non-fire arms classifieds and see where it goes. Of course you know that the hard core cast boolit shooters will be hitting you up for selling them raw lead? Some may even consider it a waste of good lead making sinkers with it.
