    What's the going price for lead? Not sure how much I've got, I can weigh later but at least 80-100lbs of lead.

    Kinda depends on composition. Type brings a lot more as does foundry lead, but the other stuff all works out to $1 to $1.20 per pound delivered in clean form.

    I'm ignorant to anything lead involved. It's all out of old medical equipment .

    Not sure how pure it is, would imagine it's decent.

    Just weighed it .I've got 173lbs 4oz of it.

    Well if you feel like coming to Waxhaw I’d take it all at .65 per pound, gonna start casting cores for swaging and need soft lead for that.

    It’s probably pure lead, may have some embedded brass parts to hold the pins in place, they float when you melt the stuff.
