    Tried to post this earlier--didn't go through. I'm a greenhorn.
    Just looking for feedback from anyone that cares to reply.
    I've been trying to sell some wheel weights both here on the Bayoushooter Marketplace and on Craigslist. I've gotten no interest at all.
    I did a lot of casting back in the 80's and 90's, but just don't shoot much anymore.
    Just curious: Are there no more bullet casters out there?
    Thanks for any replies

    Thanks. I'm retired 2 years now and had these big ideas of getting back into shooting more. Soon as I retired; boom! Covid, civil unrest, another round of hoarding, and now, totally ridiculous prices that'll never come down, imo. I'm really disenchanted now.

    I replied to your message today but it dissapeared. I would love to have it but the distance and price keeps me from jumping. The last research i did had lead that was already fuxed in ingots around the 1.25 per lb mark. Havent looked super recently so maybe it changed drastically

    Update: So, I had a quantity (200lbs) of wheel weights and linotype priced at $1.25/lb and no takers. Dropped the price to $0.75, which was much more appealing, and sold it. Seems my original price wasn't what anyone was looking to spend.

    An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it ... when it comes to lead ... it has to be a close / local sale ... shipping lead get's costly ...
    $0.75 sounds like both of you did good ...you got the stuff out of your garage and the buyer got some good wheel weight alloy ...That's a Win - Win !
