$2 per pound is a good price for linotype.  

Do you have those Tikka T3s humming yet?

I look at the price of alloy as to how many projectiles I get per pound so price per projectile.

EG:  1lb + 7000 grains.  200gr projectile = 35 per pound.  That's 5.7 cents per bullet.  About the same as a primer.

When Rotometals wants $19.99 for 5 pounds, this is a good price,

I try to shoot everyday, don,t always. Grandson walks down and out shoots me everytime. I get 5 at 1.5 / 100, his is under 1. I think I,LL GET HIM IN CBA! Old Tikka out shoots new one, even for him.
