    Useful for BP ctg. bullets ?

    I have two factory 11 lb ingots that I had scanned and came out as 95 lead 4.3 tin and .4 antimony . I'd use them for muzzleloader but they got way more tin than I want to deal with ,Bh is 7-8ish range . Would this be useful to the ctg BP shooters? I know that use 25:1--40:1 or does that .4% antimony ruin it for them in their type of alloy ?I'd rather sell or trade it off than try to turn it into something else.

    Thanks ,Tim

    A lot of the bpcr shooters are using 20-1 or 16-1 with a small amount of anatomy added to stiffen noses. What bullets are you shooting in your muzzle loaders ? It might work okay as is or add 11 lbs pure lead to it and the tin drops to 2% which should cast some really nice bullets
