Thanks for the input, Yondering. Fortunately, I now have a better handle on some of my 'unknowns' . I took a sample of my lead pipe fittings and monotype to a local salvage yard where they did a RXF(?) analysis of them. The fittings are 98%+ lead and 1.5% antimony with traces of other metals. The monotype is 80% lead, 12% antimony, and 7% tin. I shouldn't have any problem with having the right amount of antimony, just have to alloy the stuff properly to get enough tin for good fill out. The comment about coww alloy hardness giving good expansion at my desired velocities gives me a target BHN to shoot for.

Thanks again!

Glad to help, Hook. Let us know how they work out, and maybe post pics of some expanded bullets if you recover any.

It's about time to send this BTT. Still a great method.

I enjoyed his informative posts.

That's a fact! This thread got me started on the right track and now it is all I do for cast. I even went back and cleaned the lube off all the cast I had stockpiled, both my cast and commercial cast, and PC'ed them. I have had zero problems using this method!

Powder coating makes the game a little better.

Pistols and rifles seem to be a lot cleaner than with regular lube and it seems that powders that were not burning completely are doing better.

This has been used in the 45-70 and 458 socom on the big side and 7x57 and others on the faster side.

Nothing better for pistol bullets no matter what caliber.

PC just works.
