1. What is a typical size of a lead ingot and usually how much do they cost?
An ingot of lead has no standard size. My ingot molds are home-made, produce many different sizes. Cost depends on many factors. From free to outrageous.

2. How many 44mag, 45acp bullets, 9mm bullets could I get out of an ingot?
7000 grains to the ounce. You have to do the math.
Quote:
3. Lead is pretty posionous any saftey measures you recommend.
Do not smoke or eat when handling lead. Almost all problems with lead come from children eating lead based paint.
Quote:
4. last question how long would you say would it take to make 100 bullets
Using two identical Lee six-cavity molds, I can cast 100 bullets in just a few minutes. However, if I used one of my early single cavity Lyman iron molds, about an hour.
