I am reverse engineering an old alchemy formula so I can turn gold into lead...
The best place to look is the backstops where people shoot.
I think wheelweights are drying up, since most are now zinc or steel. Then again, there are enough old timers who have buckets saved for fish sinkers that never were cast.
Most of my lead came from lead sheathed cable at the power company for which I work.
Some finds are once in a lifetime. I traded a cast iron teapot for a door stop that was a 27 pound brick of linotype at the local coffee shop. I told them the coffee pot would serve the same purpose and fit in with the decor.
If you live by a marine or harbor, nose around their for ballast or keels. One find of a sailboat being scrapped out can set you up for life.
The best way is to put out the word far and wide to all friends, relatives, coworkers, and anyone you know. You will be surprised which people might come through for you. I got some rather inexpensive lead from my nephew's girlfriend's grandfather, just because the word was passed along the grapevine.
