Anyone know a local place where I can get lead ingots for casting? Thanks.
Check out estate sales on Auctionzip. Earlier this month Sohn's in Evansville had a sale that featured 2000 lbs of lead ingots. Most came from Midway usa, it sold for an average price of 55 cents a pound.
Usually estate sales are discussed here on INGO,your all knowing,all flowing,and all moaning information station.
OH, THERE IS A SALE JUNE 5TH, BLUFFTON , WITH LEAD.
see YA there!
Check some of the scrap yards. I bought 200 lbs in kokomo a month ago for 30 cents a pound. I'm not sure how appropriate it would be for bullets. I will use it for scuba weights. It seems kind of soft
Craigs list has lead, now and again, I get mine from tire shops and then clean and blend into ingots. Then the clean ingot go to the smelt pot on bullet making days.
Scrounged is always cheaper but if you want clean reliable ingots try Cast Boolits website. Plenty of guys selling those in Swappin and sellin.
Where's the Kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth shattering Kaboom.
