Man can I hook you up. Im running the new Princeton medical center on rt1. Right now they are installing a lead lined wall for the MRI . They have tons of these little rolls of 2" x 10' rolls of lead that they use to cover over a joint.I'll get you a few. Each roll has to be 5lbs

If you know any residential plumbers, they can get you lead sheets from shower pan remodels, old lead bend traps and lead bars. Ask them to save you some next time they come across some.

Zinc causes bad casting as it heats and cools at a much higher level than lead.
Wheel weights that are tin and lead are fine , except stuff you make with it will be a little lighter than if made out of pure lead.

but when saving about 2 bucks a sinker I could care less if a 8 oz sinker weighs 7 1/2 .

I try and use the purer lead for all my bucktails and jigs, and the other mixed stuff for all my sinkers
