Melting lead and mixing alloys for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test

(This video was originally posted to YouTube on February 19, 2017.)

This is the second video in the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series, which is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities.

In this video I measure out and melt together the lead, tin, and antimony required to create the alloys that will be used in this test.
