Ya, there are a lot of good sources of ww and a few that don't bother with temperature or seperating out the bad. I've had nothing but good stuff when I've boughten it. I would say melt a couple lbs of it and watch the temp that it melts at, if it is around 600-650F and all melted without "oatmeal" like slug on top(zinc doesn't melt till 800F so it will kind of seperate out and form a slug ). If it is all melted, other than maybe some normal oxides on top(no thick junk) it should be the good stuff. Cast a few and see if the bullets get all rough and chunky, or smooth(as long as the mold is hot enough or preheated) and well filled out.
