    Bismuth at BPI

    Just a heads up BPI has a sale on Bismuth at the moment . 7 pounds of #2's and 7 pounds of #4's shipped cost me $250 . Got some a couple years ago and 7.7 pounds of #1's cost me about $200 .

    That's a rip off. Rotometals shot is normally less than that, and goes on sale for $15 a pound.

    Trust me, they run the sale a couple times a year. I purchased 40 pounds of it around july at $15 a pound. On top of that, shipping is free from rotometals. Sometimes Zip metals has the sale as well.

    I just checked Zip Metals, they have it for $15.57 a pound right now, and it's not even on sale.

    Must be a slow weekend in MN.

    There are some pluses to buying the 30% smaller bottles.

    Zip metals sells in those 7 pound bottles. I took time out of my day to provide better sources of shot, I hate to see guys get ripped off.

    Tom. don;t take it personal.. what do they say- You can lead a horse to water but….

    "we at the forum" give away info all the time, and still guys don;t want it, or choose to not listen and go another way-
    I just shrug it off and move to the next shooter who will listen and wants the help!

    You did your best to inform other shooters -

    NOW "they" have the choice to listen or NOT!!
    Spend more or LESS and or look for source other than the BIG BRAND gun shooting supply shops online….

    Tom' as soon as you get the machine and decide to run the #2 - #4 shot in Bi let me know ! I need to get you some drawings or prints of what we have.

    I will say thank you for taking the time to HELP! 'Thank YOU'!
