I don't really know what the life span is. I bought my Blackhawk in 1964 or 1965. Factory loads at first then 158gr cast bullets with 13.7gr of 2400 was my standard load - not max but fairly stout. There were some 125gr JHP along the way for woodchucks. I have no idea how many rounds since 1965 but I am sure it is not as many as some on this forum. I have a few hundred pounds of lead alloy on hand. I was recently gifted a 60 pound ingot of pure tin to go with the pure lead on hand. I did use some antimony for a while, which is a bear to melt, and a lot of wheel weights. The Blackhawk is still running fine.
