    FS: I have some hard lead alloy ingots.

    FS: I have some very hard lead alloy ingots. They are 84% lead 7% antimony .5% tin.

    Small flat rate box containing 12 pounds of ingots

    $22.00 per box shipped USPS to you. PayPal or USPS money order.

    I have 10 boxes. PM with “I’ll take it” and shipping info.

    Thanks

    Small amounts of metals like copper, very small amount of Zinc ...etc. I just didn't get the other amounts off the analyzer due to time.

    Even wheel weights have a small percent of zinc mixed in. It must be such a small amount that it won't matter. I have been told that the ingots I have are called "plus metal" due to the high tin. I have not cast with it, I already have more stock than I could use.

    You should mix it with pure lead down to the hardness you like. I tell you what...PM me your address and I'll send a piece. Mix it up the way you like and cast some boolits then let me know.

    Received my ingots today and they look good. I checked the hardness with my Cabin tree tester and they show 23-24 Brinnel. I will try and melt some up this weekend if I get the honey-do's done.
    Thanks Vinne
    Have a great day!
