Where to source lead ??
#15
I agree with Heelerau, lead flashing is OK for ball. I use a lee hardness tester on mine and it comes up at about 8 BHN
, although i do use it in my .451 hawken in a 500g solid base GG bullet, and the same bullet but unsized in No2 musket. A tester is well worth the money if you cast your own but it will not tell you the content of the lead, so knowing the source can be important. I think all casters who have had zinc in their lead will understand.
