    a 50 or 30 caliber ammo can will work fine, you can find them at military surplus stores, and guns and knife shows etc. They are really easy to find I am sure someone you know has one kicking around.

    You can use a Hoffman electrical enclosure, install an overflow and a drain, fill with brake fluid and you are good to go

    Shootman: Please explain what a Hoffman electrical enclosure is and how the overflow and drain plays into the setup.

    Make sure you are going to have a good steady supply of Lead -- it is getting harder and harder to find as the price keeps rising -- everybody is trying to get in on the bandwagon with the price of raw Lead -- I use an old style military metal gas can -- cut out the top at the seam -- left material above the seam at the end and welded a garden style hose bib to the side at the top for over flow -- positioned it so it left the fluid level below the top about 1/4 inch before it would overflow -- and one at the bottom front to drain the coolant -- easily handles 125 pounds of Lead with no problem -- all that I want to make at a time because of the time it takes -- just another idea
