Not funny / at all yall

Now, all domestic mined lead ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the US. Not only will ammo now be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder this… there is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from a government entity instituting de facto ammo registration. So much for the Second Amendment. There has not been a peep about this in the major news outlets and it is done. With the US no longer producing lead, all supplies will now have to come from China, Australia or Peru, with the overwhelming emphasis on China. More redistribution of wealth; more economic and liberty crippling of the US on tap.

I've got 210 lbs of tungsten in 70 lb. bars for sale. It is 1.7 times as heavy as lead. I haven't a clue what the pricing is nowadays. I would probably trade for gold or silver if the exchange was right.

No, this is not funny at all.

Tin can be cast just as easy as lead

So can Zinc. Who cares about lead, you just need to buy a loading press and make your own.

Car batteries still have lead

To hell with the 10 dollar refund.

Heck with gold.

Man am I glad I saved grandpa's old fishing sinker collection. This just made it worth a hell of a lot more than gold. Lol

I doubt you'll be shooting gold slugs when the SHTF.
