What is the “foil” found on some wine and liquor bottles (surrounds the cork at the top of the bottle) made of? It is very pliable. I’m thinking it is likely tin as lead would be verboten in this day and age, even if we didn’t consume it. I just hate to trash something useful to send down range. If it is useful, I can probably get three boolits for my .45-70 from what I consume in the next decade. Waste not – Want Not!

I have been told it is tin but then I have been told many things that proved wrong with time.

Tin is expensive. Usually, those wrappers are made of dead soft aluminum.

Tim, you should crack open a bottle of champagne when the lathe starts spinning in the new shop, then do an XRF analysis of the foil!!!!ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ”«
