Any of you guys cast your own bullets?

I've got more then 100 pounds(two 5gal buckets) of these I'm not going to use.


Some are alloyed with linotype, some with wheel weights, and a few pure lead.

PM me if interested.

Lead going for about a buck a pound. It's the shipping that'll kill ya.

Grandpa use to cast his handgun bullets; you need a Brinell hardness of 15-17 (unless ur gonna copper coat 'em.)

BTW: Don't breath the fumes when you melt it down.

I didn't have a hardness tester but the linotype alloy was going over 1000 fps in my 45LC Blackhawk with no barrel leading.

Gas-cutting is generally caused by bullets that are too small or a chamber throat that is bigger than the cylinder allowing gas to get by the bullet and "cut" the lead making it soft around the base. If everything fits correctly, you can easily push 15 bn lead to 1200 or better. I used to push gas checked 200 grain lead in my IHMSA gun to 1800 fps with no leading.

That was my biggest concern.........next to handling it. But then again, am I really worried about lead poisoning at my age.

Maybe I should just stick with copper jacket.
