    3.7 of pure lead to 1 pound lino approximates Lyman #2... 1% low on the tin but close enough. I use that mix for everything when I have it.

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    Local co-op, they do a ton of farm truck semi tires so many were 2-6 oz COWW. Love those huge weights! Not a lot of waste when smelting them! And a lot of fancy alloy pickup rim tires so a lot of stick on weights.
