I don’t know how many of you guys are avid bullet casters like myself, but if you are, then you are no doubt aware of the ever increasing cost of the materials we utilize in the manufacture of our little “pills-o-death”. That said, I recently ran across a post on another forum were the discussion was of pewter items that guys had been gathering up at garage sales, or more specifically had instructed their wives to buy at garage sales. As pewter is mostly tin (85% - 99%) with the remainder being copper and antimony it should work fine for adding a bit to the flow out of bullets and also harden them up just a tad. I am just curious if any of you had tried it? I am currently using the “certified” tin bars from Midway USA and have been pleased with the results, however the cost including shipping is starting to seem a bit unreasonable to me. If the pewter works just as well (it’s the copper content that has me concerned) and I can scrounge up a mug, platter or picture frame or two for a few bucks at a garage sale, then hey………… why not?!! It would be a lot less expensive than buying the “certified” stuff.
