joshlm,
what type of velocity levels do you want to use with your cast bullets? That question is the most important one in relation to what you will, or won't, need to add to the soft lead to make it perform the way you want it to. I could go into a full lead alloy discertation here, but if you have a velocity level in mind, it will greatly simplify the answer. The best alloy blend for your .45 may not be the best for your .357 and .44.

You will get lots of help here, there are a lot of guys with many years of bullet casting experience.

If you're just looking for plinking rounds, you may want to use the soft lead with a little bit of tin. If you slug your barrel and cyinder throats to determine the proper fit, and size your bullets accordingly, you may be able to go up to 1000fps or a little more with the soft lead. There is a lot of info here on fitting your cast bullets to your gun that will be of a great help and save you some cleaning time and possible frustration.

Good luck.
