Muffin tins are great for ingots but they sure don't fit in the most popular casting pots.

The Lyman/Lee/RCBS ingot molds on the other hand, fit into the pots well and its easier to figure out ratios of allow added into the pot.

I have several hundred of them stacked up on the floor in my shop.

I saw somebody selling 10# round ingots at a gun show once,I'm thinking that is one serious muzzle loader that takes those

Round ingots might yield better distance.


Hope that doesn't hold more than seven ingots - You could be in trouble in some jurisdictions!

I keep my lead in 5 gallon buckets, mostly in sheet, bar and wheel weight shapes until i need it. I have an "ingot" removed from a truck that is a lead-filled channel iron weighing over 100 Lbs, and some lengths of actual lead pipe, and a few dozen blocks of engine bearing Babbit. I never pass on a chunk of lead.
