Today, I thought I would hit a few tire shops to get a few wheel weights to add to my bucket. So as I have done in the past I called the scrap yard to see what they were paying. I figure I ought to pay at least scrap price so as to try and be fair about it and no one gets cheated. So I called the local scrapyard and to my surprise they are paying .40 a pound for wheel weights and .50 for soft lead I repeated that I wanted to know what they were paying and he repeated those prices.
At .50 a pound for lead reclaimed shot, will be well worth the effort and I might be building that bullet trap real soon there is no sense in wasting any more. It will be profitable very quick to build the trap.
In the end I did not get time to look any way but I am still surprised at the high price. How much are they in your area??
