Of 269lbs of lead.

Dirty, with some copper mixed in. A friend of mine got a scrap contract with a local indoor range. The same one I have been trying to scavenge for a while lol.

So now, it just needs melted and cleaned up a bit. Figure if I yield 250lbs of lead from this batch, that would be 1,750,000 grains of lead. Under ideal conditions of course.

If we average it to 200 grains a bullet. Since we have 230 grain molds, and 185 grain molds. That has the potential to yield 8,750 bullets.

On top of the other lead we have stocked up, and needing cast, that is actually in clean ingots right now. I will not be needing plinking bullets for quite some time.

Now, if I could just get more brass lol.

Show off. Been getting buckets of ww for $20. Each new bucket the amount of usable mix seems to go down, although last one yielded bout 80#. Good find there.

I have been unable to get weights. All the local hops either "dispose of them properly", or have a guy that already gets them. Best part was what I paid. Only .25 a pound. If you would like some, he should have another few hundred pounds over the next few days.

Yeah, don't want any zinc in there. Shouldn't be a big problem. Looks to be all jhp ammo.
