Just a few years ago, .45 ACP was in short supply and was costing $48 a box in KTP, Kittery, ME. They were limiting people to one box, I believe.
Before the recent shootings, it was down to about $26 a box.
I recently took my electric pot and molds out and began using up some of the lead I'd been saving. With my 6-cavity mold, I managed to cast about 600 bullets one day.
