    I think casting here in NZ is a bit of a rarity. I've only just got back into it in the last year (used to do in UK a bit). I'm guessing that mixing your own alloy is way out there for NZ, I wonder how many do it?
    Looking at the bits you have for sale, maybe if you did the maths for us and sold in batches of "mix all this together and you will get xxx kg of alloy similar to Lyman #2 ..... $xxx" that might help? I could be keen depending on pricing, maybe others too then.....

    Lyman #2 is 90% lead, 5% antimony, 5% tin. I was making up alloy at 93.5% lead, 3.5% antimony, 3% tin for a BHN of about 12.7. Works really well in a 9mm. Bump the antimony up to 5% and you'd get a BHN of about 14.

    These prices are equal or less than I paid at bulk rates so what's you problem with them? I'm not making a cent.

    I gave away a whole heap last year or the year before, I was shocked at the slow up take on that offer too. I think even the pistol shooters are using FMJ stuff nowadays as the price differential isnt much.

    Hi Kurt, I would be interested in the rolls of tin if you still have them, I don't need any of the lead or antimony, I get all my lead from
    the local scrap dealer for $3.00 kg and I don't use antimony and wheel weight are free or a six pack if I need any,
    Give me a price freighted to Tokoroa please.
    Cheers
    Robert.
