    Are you saying that the antimony did dissolve in the lead before you added any tin? Or were you talking about the superhard?

    A couple years back I had a scrap yard hit me up for like $1.50 per pound and I told him that I was thinking more like $0.85 for all of it. He sent me to his bigger yard where I got a 2,400 pound gaylord. Low and behold there was 60 pounds of high...

    The finning means a tiny flake of something stuck to the mold. Inspect very carefully. it is probably a small flattened blob of alloy preventing the mold from closing completely. It could even be that you might need a dab of lube on the alignment...

    That purpley color only means that pure lead oxidizes really fast. Not an indicator of having been too hot but indicates pure lead. It won't do that if you pour in in a cold mold but your ingot might be ugly.

    You are coming up with about 4% antimony and 5.4% tin. You might be able to spare some tin and still get the same results unless you are using more tin to make the bullets tougher so they won't fragment so bad.

    You should not have to melt the antimony. The tin will dissolve it like water does salt. It is hard to melt antimony. Now for the question that I cannot answer: How much antimony will the tin hold before it quits dissolving it? Also I know that...

    296 for full power loads . I have found 296 to be more versatile than the 2400 so to save shelf space I just quit buying 2400. 231 or unique for medium and plinking. I never could tell a difference between unique and 231.

    May be over cooking the powder. I have found with some powders if you cook them longer the color changes mostly it gets darker. Or in a more simple term you burnt them lol.
