This very hard alloy was designed
to completely fill the molds used in the printing process prior to the development of computerized typesetting in the late 20th century. It is a bit hard for silhouette shooting or hunting bullets, as it tends to shatter when hitting metal plates or heavy bones.

Foundry Alloy Pieces
Looks good - fair bit of dirt/dust/copper bits to screen/wash out- think floor sweepings- use disposable gloves and open the box inside a trash bag to contain the lead dust- probably best transfer it to ammo/paint can(s). Just over a gallon of typeset and bits just as they say.
linotype, and thermometer
thermometer needs a clip to hold it oin the pot
Lots of letters.
Lots of letters. I find myself picking out ones to spell my name! Started with just my initials then my wife’s, then full names. Now I’m thinking hostage letter! So many neat fonts. I found an ampersand that I’m keeping! It appears that it should make good bullets. I plan on mixing a percentage of pure lead in once I get it all melted into ingots. Good stuff and I find it interesting too.
