Or does the build up make it harder than it's worth? I'm a long way from making boolits but got a source and from what I been reading, you can't get too much lead.

Grab it ... the build-up will burn out when you melt it ... probably a little too soft for boolits but can mix with other stuff to make it suitable ...

Grab it Sid....My first melt was a big pile of lead pipe and scrap I'd gotten from a plumber friend.

Man if you can find a plumber who is renovating an old house you can get a nice load

Thanks guys, I'll get it from him. Don't know how much he's thrown out over the years. He may can get enough I can throw some ya'lls way. You can call me when you get ready to make some boolits and I'll come by to pick up some tips.

Lead pipe is usually pure lead. YES, grab it if it is FREE are almost free.

Mixing 50/50 pure lead and linotype makes great bullets. You could save a little of that pure lead (after making ingots) to sell to the blackpowder shooters.
