The bismuth gives you the weight (as close to lead as possible) and the tin helps holds it together and makes it less brittle. This is an alloy we have been asked to make a few times so we decided to make a larger batch and have it easily available to everyone. As we are still testing this alloy, we are offering it at a lower cost and asking customers for feedback and their thoughts on how it works. Yes, we know it costs way more then a lead version, but hopefully with more volume, we can offer better prices in the future. One item of feedback we got from our customer follows:
@ 2400 fps in my 30'06, but has lost 29% of nominal cast bullet weight
Price Per Pound:
It seems to work great for casting. I have used it so far for casting round balls for muzzeloader and it works great.
If you need a Non-Lead alloy for fishing baits, weights, jig heads etc., this is the alloy I would suggest. I use the alloy for blade baits, drop-shot weights, jig heads and more. I use a Lee melting pot to pour into my Do-It Molds and the alloy at just over 300° F pours perfectly each and every time. Super fast delivery!
I use it to make jig heads for my customers at Glasswater Angling as we are a lead free, non lead, fishing tackle company. It provides a specific gravity close to lead and is very easy to work with. I have gone through 15lbs of it (over 2,000 jig heads) and have found it consistent every time.
I have been using the Bismuth Tin alloy to pour all types of lead free jig heads and blade baits in my molds from Do-iT Molds. Its a perfect alloy for this purpose!!!
I bought this alloy to cast for muzzleloaders and shotgun for hunting in an area that prohibits lead. So far it casts well but definitely prefers lower temperatures than lead alloys, and casts better in colder molds.
It's more expensive than lead but not nearly as hazardous. Good finished weight and melts without a problem. I bought 15 pounds and it came in a few days, less than a week. Good stuff!
Best products for all purpose
This alloy worked out perfectly for me! I needed a Lead-Free alloy that I could easily pour using the same bait molds I purchased from Do-IT Molds. No issues at all, environmentally safer than lead and I would suggest / recommend this alloy to anyone else pouring baits!!!
I have been quite frustrated wanting my father’s custom .64 caliber cap and ball rifle to be able to hunt in California. All projectiles must be 0% lead. I can now hunt using this awesome alloy. Thanks
