Thread: Lead alloy calculators

    Why does this calculator have pure lead coming up at a BHN of 8.6? If I put in 10 pounds of pure lead, by itself, the estimated BHN comes up at 8.6, instead of 5 as it should be.

    so you can use the thing for what ?
    I can't seem to figure this out
    does it just tell you what certain BHN values are or can
    you figure out mixes and alloys
    I usually mix 40:1 for my shotgun slugs. I use the calculator to determine how much pure lead and how much 63/37 solder bar to use to make 20 lbs of alloy
