    Two Weeks Worth?

    Um.... I think those are usually melted down to make two weeks' worth of cast bullets.....:D

    I dunno - where did you get 'em? They look like anchors or something.

    They might be fishing net weights from a shrimp trawler.

    He makes sinkers with them and I am sure its not pure lead. So I am sure it has some kind of alloy added to them. I just dont know what. I do know he has the best looking sinkers I have ever seen.

    That's awesome. My guess would be some sort of commercial fishing weight. Let us know how they fly.

    they look like radioactive medical containers, I've seen them something like that before. The lead would be fine but hope nothing's in em!
