SmokinBarrelI searched online (St. Louis) and found a place on Olive or Page, just north(?) of 170. I cannot remember the name of the place, but they sold lead bar - clean. He had a minimum of 300 - 400 lbs, and quoted me at $1.25 - $1.35 per lb. I didn't buy any, as I found a better deal. But, if you get several other people together I am sure you could pitch him an offer say, 500 lbs for $1.10 per lb, or something like that. Plus it is pure, clean and easy to handle, which in some cases is great or worth it!
Again, I tried to look, and I cannot remember what I entered to find this business, but I am sure it was on Olive or Page just north of 170. I think I used, "Lead Fabricator", "Lead Manufacturer", or something to that affect in my search. But, I cannot find it again....
I know you said in St Louis but on ebay I just got 50lbs of already cleaned 2lb ingots each for $50... not bad $1 a pound and it was already cleaned all I had to do was melt it down today and pour my wights!Can anyone tell me where in St Louis I can buy scrap lead for making sinkers? I am casting a fortune away in the Miss. Thanks.

It is with regret we announce that because of the pre-
vailing low price of pig lead and the unfavorable outlook for
improvement in the near future, coupled with the low grade
of our limited remaining ore reserves, the St. Francois Mill
and Mines Nos. 2, 7 and 8 will be permanently shut down,
effective February 28, 1933.
