    I have over 1,000 pounds of used bullet lead that I would like to trade for some .45 acp bullets.

    If you make your own .45 bullets let me know I would like to work something out.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Mike; How many bullets you want and what kind. (200gr SWC; 230 rn?) I live outside of Cincinnati. I cast a lot of bullets and would be interested in the lead. Is it still in shot bullets of have you melted it down into ingots?

    Sounds like we might be able to work something out. PM me.

    You are killing me, I figured someone would ask.:laughabove:

    I am sure the UPS shipping calculator would lock up.


    ANeat.

    I am looking for either 200 or 240 gr SWC bullets for my 1911. This is a picture of a 5 gallon bucket. I have to empty half of a bucket to move the stuff. I am getting more lead in a few weeks.

    I just weighed a box of 500 bullets (200 gr) and it came out just over 15 lbs. There is also a lot of copper left.

    Someone could probably get over 25,000 bullets out of this.

    How many 200gr bullets do you want in trade for all 1000 lbs ?

    I've got thousands and need some lead.

    Can possibly do a road trip

    I was thinking around 2 for 1 on the bullets.

    So I was thinking 8,000 bullets for all the lead.

    You should be able to make some money in the copper.

    You expect to only get 25 bullets per pound? That seems like a lot of lossage.

    A lot of those bullets look healthy enough that they could be re-reloaded.

    I am not sure how many bullets you will get out of all this since I don't have a melter or tools to do this myself....... YET

    But, I thought if someone already had a set up and I could get 8,000 rounds for trading the lead as is I would do it.

    I am looking into buying a melting pot and ingot mold. I have access to 3,000 more pounds of lead from a shooting buddy, so I have the lead supply.

    Well, there are 7000 grains to the pound, but of course no all that's lead. If we assume a WAG of 20% of the weight to be jackets, that still leaves 800 pounds of lead.

    800 x 7000 = 5600000 grains

    28,000 200gr bullets

    24,350 230gr bullets

    So, I guess you're right. ;)

    Mike I can get WW for .15 a pound. I have no idea how much copper that you would get out of that. The part that worries me is that the jacketed bullets will have pure lead in them and that will be mixed in with the cast bullets which should be a harder alloy. Of course you also have the swaged lead bullets which are pure lead also so you end up with who knows what alloy.

    If youre only making 45acp bullets it would probably be OK.

    If you want to bring them to me I could smelt them down for you for a cut of the lead and you could keep the copper. You would end up with good ingots.

    Then all you need is a Lee 4-20 pot and a good mold and you would be in bullets for a long time.

    The thing with trading 8k of bullets is it takes a couple hours to do 1000 bullets if you count lubing and everything.
    If you wanted to trade for clean ingots of WW metal I could do something like that also.

    If you buy them that would be $400.00 plus in bullets and like I said before, I can get WW for .15 a pound.

    Thanks Justin for the rates. Maybe the Post Office would be cheaper? :rofl:

    All PM's responded to, lead still available. Would also consider trade for ammo. .45 acp, 9mm or .223.

    Thanks,
