Lead doesn't begin to fume until it reaches above 1100 deg IIRC, and casting is done at much lower temps.

Smelting WW's into ingots over a gas burner can easily get you too hot because temps are harder to control with gas I have found. Here is the danger of fuming lead, not casting. Still, wash your hands a lot, don't eat or smoke while casting.
