Is this a good price for 5# of this, + $10.99 shipping.
WHile I have enough lead to last me for years, when I've bought it, it was through the swapping/selling section on the cast boolit forum. Usually you can get range scrap or old wheelweights (perfectly fine for 95% of applications) for $1-$1.30/lb, plus flat rate shipping- $12.95 for 50 lbs.
However, if you really want linotype for sweetening an alloy (I wouldn't advise just shooting it as is, too expensive, and overly hard), then that's not a BAD price. Personally I find there is enough antimony in wheelweights to harden things, if you add 1/2 lb of leadless solder (usually mainly tin with a little antimony) per 10 lb of weights; air drop for pistol, water drop for rifle.
