If you're fishing at close range, why not use a stone with a hole in it ?, works for me.

Ask rabbi, I think he used to get a hessian sack full for half a groat.

When it comes to really cheap shots, nobody can accuse me of not putting the effort in. :P

I may post something remotely useful one day . . .

i have seen old sparkplugs being used,trouble is they roll and not grip,ideal for flatty hunting.

stinky,stones with holes in them are called "lucky stones" i find mine on the beach.

but i do know our local churches have no roofs as all the lead has been nicked ,hench "church roof funds"

As I have said in previous posts, one source of lead is your local gun club. (the sweepings up). Just a bit messy seperating the cardboard and dust from the lead.

Good idea Keith , when you melt the lead all the waste floats to the top , to be sraped off.
Next step is to google for the nearest gun club >:) >:)
