For smaller manufacturers of lead bullets, or for those looking for bullet alloy for their own bullet processes, saving money while ensuring the quality of the bullet lead for sale is consistent will be essential.
Buying from online sellers through product auction sites or through third-party sellers online or in person are perhaps the riskiest ways to buy bullet lead. Often these sales are not made with any type of quality control in place, which means the lead may look right, but it may contain high levels of dross. Dross, or foreign metals and alloys in the lead, can result in problems with the casting of the bullets and may even cause high levels of fouling in the barrel when the ammunition is used.
To avoid these issues, particularly with someone offering bullet lead for sale they have melted down and cast themselves, shopping with a reputable lead supplier is always the best option. These companies tend to offer the lowest possible prices for quality produced, low dross options in bullet lead.
By choosing a reputable lead supplier, it is possible to order a specific bullet alloy that is in a size and bar configuration that is suited to your needs. Most companies will have minimum order requirements, but by several people grouping together to place an order, this is rarely an issue.
Choosing a supplier for your bullet lead for sale also allows for cost savings as buying in any quantity above the minimum order will be a lower cost than buying smaller lots online and paying a lot more for shipping.
The customer service team at the lead supplier can also help you to save money. They can work with you to ensure you get the right alloy and the right bar option to work best with your bullet lead requirements.
