I seem to have gathered over the last few years a lot of scrap lead.

I'm getting earache at home to get rid of what I will never get through.

I have two buyers lined up who I know very well, what price per kg is acceptable?

Regards

Chris

You will regret disposing of it more than you will regret keeping it.

Time enough to shift it when you have stopped shooting for ever.

Trust me this is not a wise thing to do.

I'm shifting a quantity to work to stash away over the next three nights.

I rang a local dealer who sells it at £2/Kg which seems not a bad price.

I'm going to get some dustbins and at least it will look a bit tidy for what I have left.
