    I got a good buy today on lead at a garage sale--about 20 lbs of raw lead and solder (not sure the alloy yet) and an ammo can with 30 lbs of ingots. They have RCBS on the top, and a stripe of green spray paint across the middle. Is there any chance these ingots were sold in this form by RCBS, and can thus get the information about them, or are the most likely homemade bars I'll have to test?

    They're certainly harder than the pure lead and solder.

    Most likely they were cast in the ingot molds sold by RCBS with their bullet making kits. No telling what the alloy is.

    I've never heard of RCBS selling ingots, that was the handywork of another bullet caster.
