      If you are using a hollow skirted pellet in an air gun, particularly a springer, do you want to use additives to the lead which will raise the hardness? And, yes, casting is, indeed, more art than science. Getting a relatively tiny .25 pellet to come out right is going to take a lot more trial and error than some readers of this thread might imagine. Let's just say they should expect to pack a lunch (but no eating while working with lead or some of these "exotic" metals).
