    It is 10 parts lead to one part tin. Rarely used these days because tin is very expensive. If you want to experiment with this alloy, have at it, but antimonial lead alloys are more common.

    Wheelweights +2% tin will be about 13 BHN and will perform well in full-charge hunting loads with gaschecked bullets in the .30-30. Ideal #311291, #31141 or similar will do the job with 30 grains of 4895, 4064, RL15 or Varget.
