This lead is the same lead that we use to make our jacketed bullets. It isn’t as hard as our casting lead but it is a bit harder than pure lead. This lead makes really good bullets for those looking for 12 brinell hardness. We have pretty strict requirements for variance on our lead cores. These cores are the ones that just didn’t quite meet our requirements. Rather than send them to a scrapper and lose money on them, we decided to offer the lead to our customers at a great price for alloyed lead and it helps with our costs on the lead so that we can keep the price of the jacketed bullets we make low. This lead is 2.5-3% antimony. The lead will come in one of two ways, either in core form or in little noodle form. The small noodles are created during the core forming process. This lead is way easier to work with than big ingots or wheel weights. And it will be consistent hardness throughout. There will be some minor oil residue/dirtyness on this lead. It is from the core forming process. It should burn off quickly but like always, don’t cast bullets in your bathroom with the door closed and you should be okay.
