View Full Version : Is this a good price for 63Sn/37Pb?

$4.95 per bar

25 pounds shipped to me for $135

The rude people at the local Kesters outlet refused to sell to me. They wanted $7.60 per pound.

...........That sounds about right. Metals are a commodity and prices are generally 'spot', meaning your inventory on hand can have value changes daily. I don't know the current value of tin and lead, but if offered pure tin I fall back on $7/lb (which is prolly way out of date).

Doesn't sound like a great 'steal' but rather an honest legitimate price where you're not getting hurt, either. You're getting about 14lbs of tin, so that should certainly last you a length of time. That is unless you're a BPCR silhuette shooter!
