While watching "Lead: Mankind makes use of lead, a versatile but toxic metal, " a Modern Marvels segment on the History channel just now, they provided this interesting piece of data. Bullet manufacturers consume around 600 tons of lead per day. The show was produced in 2008.

Hmmmm.....Lets see.......657,000 tons of lead in 3 years........ :eek:

How long would it take 750,000 Elsies to shoot that much lead if each Elsie shot 100 rounds a day..... :eek:

By my calculations 62,343.75 days considering they are FMJ's at 88 grains per shot. But I could be totally wrong LOL!

If it doesn't rain today I am going to do my best to shoot at least 100 rounds through LCP and 100 rounds through SR9C. I don't want to but I am trying to do my part. ;D
