    waste water pipes. probably some zinc &/or antimony. pure lead cold flows so they add the hardener. Look at Bell telecom sheathing, close to the same. Or roof plumbing jacks. That stuff shoots like COWW.

    Actually any 'box' with a hot air source (outside the box?) will work. Move the calrods and cut a hole in the bottom of the toaster oven?

    They have only a trace of silver in them as a hardener/grain refiner. They melt easily. Costs a $$ to remove the small trace of silver. They might even have cobalt in them.

    At that speed he will burn out the cutter. Even at handheld drill high speed you have to keep the cutter lubed (cooled).

    The old ones were pot metal frames. New ones look much better but I don't know what kind of safety trick they use now. They do come in many calibers. I'm looking at the NAA 22 mag. They were junk too but are much better now.

    Get the superhard from roto, pour boolits with it and then count the required number into your range scrap. 6% is usually way more than needed. You don't need any tin either. Chilled shot has arsenic that is a good hardener for water dropping.
