Just started playing with a mold I bought off E-Bay to cast #4 buckshot and am getting decent results using pure lead, but since my supply of pure lead is very limited, I got to wondering if it would be a good idea to cast it with wheel weight alloy. I know that our very own Silicon wolverine casts his own double aught, so I thought I might be able to get some input from my esteemed colleagues here.

What do you think?

I have a 00 buck shot mold that I got from SW, and it works just fine with wheel weights.

Thanks guys, now I can save my pure lead for other projects. If I figure out a way to test the difference in terminal perfomance between the two I will post my results.

Pure lead is better suited for casting round ball for muzzle loaders.
