Here's a small amount of range lead I salvaged from my private gun clubs indoor range.



Depending on what they've been shooting there, the lead tends to be pretty soft. It also is starved for tin. Meaning you have to have a source for tin to sweeten it. Most of that falls into that category, but since it was free for the hauling, smelting and processing was all volunteered. Having to buy tin is a small expense. We spent plenty on propane to smelt with, probably around $150.00 worth. But we netted a ton of lead!

Here I'm loaded up, headed home to the casting area.



If that range lead is already ingotized, then jump on it! If it's just like the following pic, then realize there will be some expense involved in processing it.
