I was melting down some lead the other day and came across these unusual weights in the bucket. Not sure why they made such odd sizes

I have a reading mold for the one on the right, cushion style in 1.5,2.,2.5,3,3.5 and like you if I use sinkers it is usually 2.5 oz. If you want to do a pour one day let me know.
thanks for the offer..if I ever run out of sources I know where to go!:thumbsup:

I have a bunch of different size molds Do-it a few years came up with a 7 oz. /9 oz. combo mold so I had to have it. I wanted a 14 oz. but I really do not see why a 12 or 16 oz. like I have be that critical at that weight. Talking lead I cast 3 doz. bucktail jigs today 2/3/4/5/and 6 oz. Paint and bake another day
