I do believe so. I used to use Nickle Babbitt when I was
was working at the sawmill. I had to blend it with COWW or
the bullets would be too light.

It's expensive but it is a way too make
lead free cast bullets for hunting areas
where lead isn't allowed. I would
strongly suggest sticking with iron molds
when casting with it. Lead free solder is
"stickier" in my experience then normal
lead casting alloys and sticks the most to
brass molds and nearly as much to aluminum
molds. Iron molds it's still noticeable
but it is the least "sticky" with in my
experience.

If you are actually going to shoot just
targets for cost reasons a bullet trap to
allow re-use of the expensive metal would
also be a good idea.

One thing that is great with it is that
you get wonderful fill out with nice crisp
edges.
