I'm sure you moved it only in a DOT marked and approved truck with all the HAZMAT paperwork filed.....

Whatever you do, be sure to notify Maine DEP when you begin to process all that lead....

Lessee....

1,500 lbs
x 85% Yield
-------------
1,275 lbs
x 7,000 Grns. / Lbs.
-------------
8,925,000 Grns of Metal

= 37,187 .44 Bullets @ $0.0016 ea. or,
= 56,487 .357 Bullets @ $0.0011 ea.

Pretty good score! Now you can afford to give some of them away! :D

So how long does it take to cast 37,187 .44s or 56,487 .357s? ;)
Ken,

This sounds really out there, but as a young Engineering Student I once conducted an MTM study (Method-Time-Motion) of casting bullets..... with a full pot (28 lbs), prepped molds, Best Net was with two molds casting 6 cavities each of like bullets. I could average 4 cycles (8 throws) for 48, 358429 bullets per minute.

Using that as a standard, it would take 19.613 Man Hours of Applied Labor.

That's not so bad is it?

:D
