    Lead spot price for 1# is .72 cents per pound. Car weights are #2 or #3 depending on the nickel in them. just an FYI.

    I buy good clean lead locally for $1 a pound.
    I guarantee after sorting there's less than 50# of lead weights in that bucket.
    Then there's the clips and dross.
    No thanks!
    I only use wheel weights if they are free.
    Good luck to the seller.

    I pine for the days when I could get 5 gal buckets for $20, and they'd yield 100+ pounds of ingots. Better yet was a buddy I could trade cast bullets for buckets of ww's. Still need to smelt down that last bucket.

    No way I'd pay that much for ww's, too much work to make them into ingots and too many non lead ww's today dropping making it iffy how many ingots you'll end up with.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    yeah, that's pretty steep for wheel weights that probably have a high percentage of zinc and iron weights not to mention the clips and the time and effort to smelt it into useable boolit material.
