I have acquired 36 pounds of babbit.
I cast LBT style bullets for my 44 mag with water quenched wheel weights. I was wondering if I added a percentage of this babbit to my melt if it would increase the hardness of my bullets. If anyone has any experience with babbit I'd like to hear from you.

Thanks Z

Babbit has a lot of variations depending on the intended use. Some have copper and zinc in them, and so increase surface tension. I would suggest trying a small amount first in a small amount of lead, and see what kind of fill out you get.
