Sure wouldn't use wheel weights in a C&B

Especially a skirted Minnie Ball of 500gr ... needs to be soft lead do to expansion of the skirt. I don't think you want hardcast lead bangin' up your rifling.
Hardcast usually shrink more when cooled and may be a bit loose...also hope you have a stove available and a cast iron pot...Lee electric dont melt or mold wheel weights very well... That's enough outta me, what do I now from lead...LoL!
