Tis why I get all of the used ones from work that I can scrounge & sometimes our dealer will sell em to me from his other drops for $.45 a Pound.

I still mix in some of my old plumbers lead that I've had forever to keep all my bullets uniform as possible.

I've since lost my hardness gauge but have found that when you mold it in ingots & can take a regular Sharpie magic marker & can scribe a line in the metal with bottom of the pen "not the writing end but the opesite" it's plenty soft for muzzleloading.
