Default Looking for lead. Got any laying around?

I am going to make some weights since my boat is broken right now. I borrowed my buddies molds but I need some lead. I was hoping somebody had some laying around. I wouldn't mind giving you some of the final product. Thank you

check with your local tire shops. If you can get an inside source, you can get the wheel weights. Alot of people say they don't like to use them, but I never had a problem. You just need to fish out the steel clips from the molten lead before you pour them.....

Ebay is a pretty good place to get pure lead, under $1lb if you buy 100lbs.

I have some. Actually, I got to thinking about it and I'll just give you the lead I have if you're still in need.

Need egg & tear drop leads. Egg for bottom fishing, Tear drop for bait rigs. I have say A "little" laying around. Maybe a 100#s.
