Thanks for the info guys.
I will be loading a few test rounds this weekend. Ojectives are as follows.
1. Weigh bullets
2. Loan my buddy's chronograph
3. Build hardness tester
5. Report test results
It's going to take me a week to get this done.
Some of the babbitt dicussion is jaring my memory. I actually remember seeing some railway car axle bearings. (Don't ask why) They were much less dense that lead. No signs of orange discoloration in the pot. I did notice this batch of lead was slightly more shiney in color.
I will report back in a few days.
Thanks all the info. I appreciate it.
