thanks guys for all the help. i will call around and try to get the wheel weights.i am not looking for high vilocity, just good plinking rounds. if i end up getting the pure lead where is a good place to get the tin.I have bought some cast bullets from midway and wasn't real happy with the quality,and the shipping gets expensive.

thanks again
