Wanting to find a midwest supplier for some 3/16" lead wire for bullet making if possible. Just wondering where does everyone source their bulletmaking lead. TIA.

check your local phone book first. the shipping will break you back, unless you go by the hundred weight by truck transport.
Lead prices are way up.
If you can get some pure lead you can opt to cast and swage your cores.
You will get some waste from the bleed off and you could melt it down and cast a rough core to swage to weight.

The last roll of lead wire I got was from Lester Bruno, you might check with him.

The last lead wire I bought came from Mayco Industries (http://www.maycoindustries.com/extrusions.htm) in Birmingham, AL. I used to buy from Berger, but they no longer sell lead wire and Mayco was one of the suppliers that they had on their list. There were about 3 or 4 others on their list as well.

I hear that folks are buying cores that are better than they can make.

I think Charlie Hood is supplying cores, isn't he?
