Lead recycle issues

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Recently I've been recycling lead from old bullets.But everytime I recast the molten lead to an ingot, its surface is oxidized, therefore I am losing lead every single time I reuse it.

Are there simple solutions to this without using an atmosphere of noble gases?

No.

(add all possible disclaimers about how lead is toxic and dangerous)

Worse, it may not be pure lead. The possible presence of alloyed metals etc raises the stakes...
