Try cutting off a small slice of the shiny stuff with a knife. If it cuts smoothly it's probably pure tin. If it sort of flakes off in chunks it might be antimony, which is used in VERY small doses to help harden an alloy. I'm betting on tin. A 1 lb. ingot would mix with 40 lbs. of wheel weight material to get an approximate 5% alloy, once the floating steel clips were skimmed off the pot.

Anyone know if a mold can be reconditioned? I tried a 30cal I'm guessing about a 150gr sp mold in the collection and it is leaving a thin bit of flash at the base. Thought maybe the sprue plate was loose but no. Then I noticed a bit of a divot at the edge of the mold which I think is allowing a bit of lead to flow out of the mold.
It's an RCBS mold. Anyone know if it can be sent back for repair?
