I have some ingots which I think are about 10 pounds. Some have the words "Five Fold" molded into them, and some say "Bunker Hill". Can anyone tell me what alloy this is from that much info? I suspect it is pure lead.

Generally if I have an unknown type of lead I'll melt up a batch in a 10# pot or small pan. That way I can ladle pour some bullets just to be sure there isn't any zinc in it. Otherwise I might contaminate my other lead when I mix it in.
What does zinc do?
