If you are interested in casting your own, try checking with your local tire shops. They are often happy to give you their scrap wheel weights. I cast lots of bullets with just straight wheel weights. This makes them almost free. Free bullets is a good thing. Only cost is some electicity for the melting pot. Maybe a few bucks for a mold, but that makes for some cheap bullets that shoot great.

The days of free wheel weights in my area are long gone. They sell all their wheel weights to the Exide Battery Company. The truck picks them up when they deliver the batteries. It's hard to compete with that, since they're paying a good price for them. I was able to buy about 75 pounds recently, but it cost me $ .55 a pound for them.
Hope this helps.
