I have some bars of something here. I am not sure what they are and don't know how to tell. Maybe someone here could shed some light on what it might be.

I have some ingots that have been poured in to a mold that is 14" long X 2" wide. The material can be scratched with your nail but you really have to press hard to make a scratch. On the face of the bar it has a C and a flower then an S. It has some numbers on the back that says 10SB90PB....

Any idea guys please let me know

Steve

Ok I think I may have my answer.

I think what I have is

10%SB (Antimony)
90%PB (Pure Lead)

What if anything should I add to this to make great bullets. Keep in mind I am shooting out of a Uberti Sharps 45/70 and not hot loads

Thanks guys. You are the best.
I now have al of my materials to make some good bullets.

BTY a friend called me today and wanted to know if I wanted some pure lead. I said yes. When I went to pick it up, it was 350lbs of pure sheet lead. A great find........Should keep me stocked for a while
