    I have a 25# bag of WW nickel plated # 5 shot...Can this be melted down & used to cast bullets? Will the plating & lead mix properly? What will the Brinnell Hardness be? Thanks guys.........................Pete

    I'd be interested in it if you decide to sell.

    Thanks,

    I would be interested in trading for plain lead shot or ingots for you to cast. If you would ship the shot to me I would ship mine to you.
