Casting for black powder?

I've got a .44 caliber (came with .454 dia balls) CVA "Navy" blackpowder pistol. The cheap one with the brass frame.

I was going to buy a round ball mold for it, Lee 90442, but I was wondering if I can use wheelweight lead for such ammo? I heard that you should only use pure lead for blackpowder?

Also, Lee makes some conical bullet molds for black powder pistols, 90382 and 90382. Would one of these work also?
