$1 per pound is not bad for ingots.

But for now I rather pick it up for free at the range :) can afford to pay for lead at the moment.

Those look nice. At least not all oxidized from sitting behind a shed for years.
1$# is basically what coww ignots get on castboolits.
I have processed 1k# of wheel weights its one of those things. Its not hard to do but is a bit of work. I use zinc in my black powder sabots and also good for cannon balls. Heck if I didnt just drop a good amount to stock up on primers I might have grabbed some of this just to add to the ready to cast pile.

The lead looks OK but the zinc is a potential disaster. Lead which has been contaminated by the slightest amount of zinc will lead the bore badly. If this guy used the same pot and molds for the lead and zinc ingots, the lead is useless for bullets.
