    Hello TxSnowman.
    Last time I spoke with you was over on surplusrifleforum.
    I just found this forum recently, thus why I am tardy to this post.

    I have been casting for the past 6 years now.
    I cast for all of my pistol calibers except for .22 and almost all of my rifle calibers.
    If you want more input on casting I can also help.

    Reading through this thread I see you are searching for lead.
    Randmplumbingllc hit the nail on the head on searching range berms with a shovel and a screed.
    Lowes sells has a metallic mesh for office air conditioner vents. They cost like 5 bucks.
    Grab your shovel and head out to the desert and look for places where people might shoot. Google maps might even help.
    Find a berm and start digging and use your converted screed to pick out the lead.

    If you go to the local gun shows there is a guy that always sets up on the left hand side once you enter the main room.
    He sells magazines, ammo boxes, and bayonets... I know you have seen him.
    At the last show he was selling huge 25 lb rails of linotype for $30!
    I bought out what he had in wheel weight ingots, and I bought one of the three rails he had.
    Linotype casts an excellent .309 bullet and when cut in half with WW produces a 9mm and .452 bullet that will not lead up my pistol barrels.
