Chamber Casting Alloy Ingot

Sold by the ingot. Ingot weighs approximately 1 pound.

Rotometals Chamber Alloy (158-190) is the best known material from which to make a casting of the chamber and throat of a firearm to determine caliber or check the dimensions. It melts at a temperature just above M & M's, so all you need is a propane torch and a bullet casting ladle. It can also be used to make a cast of a dovetail slot or any other hard to measure area. Also, it is great for removing the front half of a case from the chamber, in the event of case head separation; and lots of folks cast a small portion of the barrel to determine bore diameter. For best results, measure the casting one hour after casting. Contains 42.5% Bismuth, 8.5% cadmium, 37.7% lead, 11.3% Tin.

MEASUREMENTS 2.25" x 2.25" x .75"


Technical Information

Basic Instructions
  • Plug the bore immediately ahead of the throat of the chamber using a small cleaning patch.
  • Pour the alloy directly into the chamber until full and allow Melting Point to cool, it will turn a shiny silver color. As soon as it has cooled enough that it is no longer a liquid (and doesn't present a burn hazard), remove it from the chamber. Take care not to overfill the chamber as the alloy will then run into the locking lug area, making removal extremely difficult.
  • During the first 30 minutes of cooling cerrosafe shrinks. At the end of one hour it should be "exactly" chamber size.

    Notes
  • Melts between 158 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Should be melted in a clean iron ladle without direct flame on the product.
  • The chamber being cast should be cleaned thoroughly and a thin coat of oil or graphite applied.
  • Reusable
