    Look em over carefully in bright light. Modern pewter will say it is pewter and is 95% tin. And the other stuff won't hurt ya none. As mentioned above, soft, bendable when thin/flat. Low melt point, silverish color, if more blue and no hallmark...

    I shoot my .357 handi in .360dw brass also. They tend to have a long throat. I played with a dummy load until it would just snap shut without leaving rifling marks on the bullet. Then used that dummy to set my dies. 3 in one hole at 50 yards,...

    I don't wear a ball cap and I am still active. They spot me in a crowd and thank me. It's like a sixth sense to some people. I always feel awkward.

    Rockrat I have a .357mag Handi rifle and it had me considering it. I have seen just barrels go for 4-500$ this last year. Get the whole gun for barrel price, that is win win in my book.

    I have the Allen company slip on one. If I had perty wood stock I would have to go leather. But since I am using cheap synthetic stocks. I go with the cheap holder. I have had it for several years now.

    I got some wooden crates on sale at Michael's and glued a little black board placard to it. The placard has the type of lead that crate contains. I only have CWW, Range scrap, and soft lead. I have a couple hundred pounds of each.

    You asked the question, "to trust or not to trust?" People have given you their opinion and reason(s) for that opinion yet it seems you are discounting/arguing and have already made up your mind.

    Ebay is about your best bet. Saw a .357max there a couple of days ago. Keep searching gunbroker also. They are getting significantly harder to find as those who like them hang on to them. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/715230810

    Not sure if this helps, but I have bought lead from both RedRiver and theCaptain. Both are very good to deal with with IMO reasonable prices. TheCaptain normally has an active thread with lead for sale.
