Why bother?

Just did some calculating. You get approx 44 - 158gr bullets per pound of lead. Midway sells 30lbs of ingots for 140 bucks plus shipping. My estimates of that equal 1320+/- bullets for $140 + shipping = 11 cents a piece to make your own bullets?? How is this economical? I can get bullets already made, lubed and delivered for a little over half that, so my question is..why bother? The cost of operating kiln, time and lube puts it at twice the price. Just asking. I know some ppl get their lead free or cheap, but there is also a price driving around to get it.
