Lead – Antimony alloys have high corrosion resistance in most enviroments. They form a protective, impermeable film even faster than pure lead and in some cases even faster than chemical lead. It is found that except in the presence of florine compunds, 6% antimonial lead is more resistant to corrosion than is soft lead. 6% Antimony, 92% Lead this is by far the most popular with target shooters. Good castability. Somewhat brittle. Moderate cost.
