The pure lead is going to be too soft. However if it is cheap enough get some. You can mix with it tire weights or tin to harden it up a little. Avoid the zinc. You can make it work. But is far more trouble than its worth. I had some tire weights I believe had some zinc in them. I did make some bullets with it but had to cast very hot. And even then with probably 25 percent junkers that had to be recast. Your best bet will be to make rounds at the tire shops. Most will give you or sell used tire weighs cheap. I shoot straight tire weights in the 357 and 44 mag. Good luck on your adventures. You are fixing to have some fun.
