There are 2 lead hardness testers that I know of, Saeco, and LBT. You want to make the sabots from pure lead which is 5 Brinell, and the fingernail scratch test is some what inaccurate as 12 Brinell lead can be fingernail scratched. If you decide to buy a hardness tester go with the LBT because it will check a ingot and is direct reading where as the Saeco is only made for checking bullets and the reading you get from it has to be cross referenced.
