Sold by the Ingot, or Bag 

The Linotype alloy consists of 4% tin, 12% antimony and 84% lead; each bar measures approximately 8-3/4" x 1" x 2" and weighs approximately 5 lbs (+/- .25). 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. It is very good for higher velocity rifle bullets when target shooting. Often used as a basis for blending special alloys that require a higher percentage of antimony. If you have a good local source of pure lead, blend it 1 to 1 with Linotype alloy to produce Hardball alloy. The Brinell Hardness of this Linotype alloy is about 22.

    Great Alloy

    Great alloy. I mixed with 3 parts pure lead to 1 part linotype to cast .312 bullets for 7.62x39. The castings came out great, flowed very well and made wonderful bullets. Some powder coat later and the bullets shot with good accuracy and not a trace of leading. Using Rotometals is always worth it. You know what you are getting. It’s clean, ships quickly, and makes casting fun.

    Exactly what I ordered for a good price with fast shipping, easy to order from the website and with all the information you’ll need to know about the items in the descriptions. Couldn’t ask for much more but maybe a free pen or two on my next order. Lol
