    SN100C Solder Bars

    I have 6 six of these bars.  Bathroom scale says 14 to 14.5 lbs….

    Anybody have a use for these?

    The price for 25lbs on a google search showed $475…that seems nuts, but whatever.

    If so, send me a PM.  They came with other stuff and I have no use for them

    Let’s make a Deal!

    That’s about the price of the stuff. Very high quality lead free solder. Comes to about $19/lb. You hit the jackpot. I do not know if it easily alloys into what we use for bullets. I’ve never tried the lead free solder. Someone here will offer the suitability for using in cast bullets.

    I’ve used something very similar to this to alloy into my bullets. It was the most painless way to get a copper enhanced alloy. Dang good stuff if it fits the bill. This particular alloy has nickel, germanium and copper with a tin base and melts at 440 degrees. I don’t know what those metals will do for the bullets, but it’s nothing I would hesitate trying.

    Unfortunately, I’m pretty set on solder and tin, so I can’t really use it, but if anybody else is interested, buy with confidence.
