It seems to me like there is no such thing as "too much lead in storage". The stuff is bound to only go up in price and become more and more difficult to find. Lead wheel weights are banned in California where I am, and that makes getting free lead tough. I have around 800 lbs of ingots of various alloy hanging around, and enough tin and antimony to work with when needed. I doubt that I'll ever cast that much myself and I don't have room to store much more. Most of it I got either free or for $1/lb or so. How much do you folks try to keep on hand?
