I can’t say casting for something under 30 caliber is a good place to learn.
FYI harder alloys are not the cure to leading issues as some may have folks one believe.

When I first started casting it was for .44’s. That in turn went up and down in size. I got as small as a 6.5 and swore and be damned I would never cast for anything smaller. Then the RF mess began several years later and I revisited the Hornet. I had no problems, but that was with 20+ years of experience. As far as casting, I am still learning it seems.
Much like reloading don’t think it makes it cheaper. It just lets you shoot more.

If Mercury was abundant I would not hesitate. I dread the thought of having to clean lead out of a 17, let alone anything as far as that goes.
