    Lead Wire

    Whilst digging for something else, I came across my stash of lead wire from my foray into swaging 455 Eley bullets.
    As I have an abundance of 265gr HBRN cast 455's, my swaging days are done.

    I have several lengths of wire, and a spool: I need to know its value.

    Holler!

    Maybe this will help establish your value?

    Finding a buyer who needs it, is the trick, otherwise it's worth about the value of the alloy.
    I have a box of wire (97-3) for swaging 30 cal, I've listed it for sale a few times, and no interest, unless it's priced and ingot/alloy price.

    Kind of what I figured.
