    It seemed to work, I had to scrape off quite a bit, but the ingots look much better now. I think what happened initially was due to a high percentage of steel COWW. Once I had taken all of those and the clips out, the temperature of the lead in the...

    Initially I was thinking it was zinc contamination, but after reading some threads about the purple color being a symptom of a too-hot pot, I'm not so sure. These were unsorted COWW and I never saw the thermometer go past 600. I did, however take...

    I suppose there could be a chance that I picked up someone else's brass. Maybe I'm too quick jumping to conclusions about the FTF problems my friend was having and seeing this short case in my pile of brass.
