Might be a bit too far to ship, but to anyone that wants to know the REAL hardness of their lead, just send me a ball or small sample and I would be more that happy to test it. If it is old, it will test a bit harder, so I normally melt the sample after first test and re-cast into a flatnose bullet mold and test again the next day. So if you wanted to shave a couple hundred grains off and send it to me, I can tell you what it is. A letter stamped on a muffin tin ingot has no meaning. You can also use water displacement to get a volume, then use the displacement volume and weight to calculate the density, which will give you the material. Displacement calculators are all over the internet.Thanks. Was hoping the letter E would tip someone smarter than me off to if it is or is not lead. I can't spend $120 on a tester for one chunk of materiel.
