Yes. That is mostly what I shoot. My father and brother in law have always been the ones to do my casting. I give them the lead and they cast it all and I get half back and they keep half. They are not casting anymore so I will be casting next spring. Lead is not that difficult to get if you want it. Pawn shops sell fishing weights at give away prices, and guys at gunshows will sell it. Guess where they got it. They picked a bunch of wheel weights up and melted it down into ingots so they are not into it very much so make them an offer they can't refuse. As far as health reasons, My father has casted for 40+ years in his garage and has been to the doc once in his life and is very healthy. My brother in law does it in his basement and is older and healthy. I was always around it as a kid and a teenager and have always been healthy and we never wore gloves. We always opend the garage door, kept the temp as low as possible, and washed our hands when done.
I say do it.
