Right on...talked to my local plumber/electrician and he stops every so often to drop of a chunk of lead pipe that he cuts off from drains and stuff. Work great, I just melt it don't then scrap the gunk off and pour it into lead ingots.
Just poured a bunch of no roll River sinkers for flat head fishing. At 3, 4, and 5 oz sinkers lead goes fast.
