Half Ton of Pure Lead
Years ago I was visiting a firearms manufacturer here in Connecticut and was allowed to clean the floor at the test range. The used all jacketed bullets. I took the scrap and melted it down and of course it was pure lead after I skimmed off the crud.
I shoot muzzle loaders, and have cast balls for all my frontloaders. But there is still a lot left over.
Of course I cast for my cartridge guns too, but I use wheelweights with a bit of tin solder for that. Pure lead is waaaay too soft. But I want to use it... just not sure how. What's the best/cheapest way for me to make a usable alloy out of the pure lead so I can cast bullets for cartridge guns?
