I have many sheets of x-ray room lead that I used to use for casting round balls, also several billets of unused plumber's lead, and even a couple of the old lead sheaths that underground phone lines were housed in at intervals along the lines. All this is either pure pig lead or the equivalent. Also have a couple of bars of linotype. A friend once asked it I was sure the old x-ray room sheeting was safe to use. I replied "Sure. The only thing I've noticed is that when I walk across a sheet of it my cajones draw up and tingle". As I age further that might be an incentive to not cast it all up. wink

Picked up two unopened one pound containers of two different Hercules powders yesterday for $10 each.

Next time our range owner orders targets and shells he is going to get me a few bags of shot.

All nice square sheets and boxes of pure lead. I bought all 1100 pounds of it, and have been kicking myself every day for not buying the huge bricks of tin they offered me. I already have tin. But not fifty pounds of it. And do I really truly need fifty pounds of tin?

You should have bought the tin. It has doubled in price, in the last year. I need a bunch of Tin for a project coming up. I am going to get back to dropping Bismuth shot. Have 400 pounds of pure Bismuth on hand. Will need 25 pounds of Tin to alloy it to 6%. Goal is to make size 4 or 5 shot. Both shot sizes are so close I might just drop 4 and be happy. Last time the sizes ran from full to about one size under. I need to figure out a way to separate out the larger from the smaller that will work quickly and be semi accurate. I have a new system coming which should hold temperature better that my Littleton Shotmaker. Temperature was very important in getting consistent size shot and nice roundish shot. Not all Bismuth shot is round but it does still work well. I would like the small shot for teal or wood ducks and the larger for mallards.

I have 4 cases of 16 ga Fiocchi. I do not have a gun for them. Not sure why I have them. Maybe I will sell them or just buy another gun to shoot them through.

I would just like to say that every single post here has made me laugh, or laugh and cry, thank you. Stan's tingling cajones, being reminded about my failure to perform on the huge bricks of tin at the smelly, disgusting recycling place, being tempted by the 16 gauge Fiocchi (I shoot 16 gauge in a Fox and a really neat LC Smith)...this all has been a reminder that I am still breathing.

Current bid $310.00 for one pound bottle. Eight different bidders. I doubt this will ever be paid for but if they do want one or two more I would be glad to ship them.

2000 CCI Primer Small Pistol 20 Boxes, current $605.00. Five bidders.

200 Rounds Federal 410 Gauge 2.5" $265.00 for eight boxes. That is $33.12 per box plus $15.00 shipping. I would load all they want for $20.00 a box.

OK, you convinced me, KY Jon, I am going to start tossing buckets of reloading component gasoline on the GB fire.

Ky Jon, go on line and look up on Amazon "Selangor Pewter"...It is almost pure tin...no lead in it. The goblets are heavy. I bought beer mugs and wine glasses in Singapore in 1973. If you get the right seller, you can get a lot of tin.

KY Jon you are realizing/ witnessing better prices than what I think I can get. With a stack of boxed primers next to me on the dining room table, I first perused the competition on GB. It is a zoo, chaos. The buying is clearly emotional, because buyers are fixating on one item and bidding it way up while ten just like it languish at 10% the price for lack of attention. I don't know if I want to participate in this. Somehow it will end up being more work than it is worth.

Or people are trying to manipulate the prices, but perhaps I am being cynical


I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.
