But bulk steel production and fabrication is relatively cheap, and after a couple of centuries, now routine.

As for materials cost, lead is rougly 4 times as expensive as steel (4.4 times in 2010). Handy, particularly if you can get the customer to pay more for an 'enhanced product' that in the long run, costs less to make, after upgrading your plant for the new process.
