I shoot steel most of the time. But, think I should have a stock of ammo suitable for hunting where ricochets are better avoided by using other ammo.

What are you using as a source for lead ammo. Not looking to get into making my own ammo in a melting pot process.

If you have a source for lead shot cheaper than $4/lb I would be interested.

Currently looking at these egg sinkers with 640 1/8 ounce sinkers for a bit under $30 or $5-6/lb. https://smile.amazon.com/Bullet-Weights-Sinker-Ounce-Each/dp/B0083GIPUA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1546068715&sr=8-5&keywords=lead%2Bsinkers%2Bbulk&th=1&psc=1

Having spent sixty years shooting a flintlock rifle, I found it convenient to cast my own lead balls. Now that I have put down my rifle I use 3/8's steel most of the time.

Whenever I go to the gun range, I pick up as many slugs as I can without making a scene. Order a lead mold, a melting pot, and you are set.
