Gentlemen,
over at DGS BBS I saw a posting that a group was in line to make a purchase of some bulk Bismuth.

How do I request permission to discuss the venture?

A nice quantity of 5's, 4's and 2's would be most welcome.

best regards,
JBP

When Mr. Lund gets back to me, I will place an order for the LPG for 100# of bismuth shot. So far, looks like mostly 5's, but also some 4's and 7's. If 2's are available, I may swap my 4's for them.

If you are interested, let me know.

I am hoping for a nice deal since we hit the magic 100#!

Phil does produce an outstanding product. I've made a couple purchases from him.

The following were all harvested, last season using his product.










My inventory of 5's is quite adequate, I fear my supply of 4's will not see me through the sometimes excellent goose hunting here, in good old northeast O-H-I-O.

If not too late,Would it be possible to join this group purchase????

Thanks in advance

Nice assortment of pics Benjo! If those don't get you fired up for the upcoming seasons, you had better check your pulse.

OK, I appreciate it...that bismuth is great stuff, If you can find someone that sells it! There was a company in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area that was all set but then I never heard from them..Then someone was selling a apparatus that would allow you to make your own bismuth shot and that looked pretty complicated, ...so here we are. Thanks for your trouble..

Just for FYI cost comparisons to this Bismuth shot when it becomes available. These prices are from shot available at Precision's & BP's online sites. All for #6 $#/$oz before shipping.

ITX 18.57/1.16
HVY 22.71/1.42
BIS 20.75/1.30
NICE 25.91/1.62

Does anyone know a ballpark $ that Phil charges? Eary Goose opened and small game is around the corner. Just getting a little antsy.

Should be about $15/#. I have 150# of commitment if Phil returns my messages.
