Lost Sheep and Flash Hole, Though I've been reloading a long time, but I've sorta been in a tunnel. None of my friends reload and I just found this forum. I was having trouble getting tire weights and started looking on the puter. I had a very large supply and recently ran out. I did not think it would be a problem getting more lead. Now it seems that the gov. has gotten into it and the tire dealers are only allowed to give the weights to recyclers. I tried to tell them that I would recycle it but they said they were under orders to sell only to their battery dealer. Yesterday I did the unthinkable and ordered lead (that I had to pay for) on the internet. That is the first time that I have ever paid any more than a bottle of my home made wine or a case of beer for lead.
