A quick note;

When recycling aluminum cans, separate the clean cans from cans with bullet holes in them.

Clean cans get more $$$ than cans with bullet holes in them.

 

If they find 1 can in your lot, the whole lot is classified as contaminated and brings the lower price.

Yes, this is technically repurposing, which is far better than true recycling. The metal/plastic/glass does not have to be melted and reformed into its new purpose. Energy is quite saved.

Yes. Colt SAA. It was a gift from my mom to my dad the first Christmas they were married. Bought at a hardware store in Reno.

Oh, I see.  I’m in California and I couldn’t imagine goofiness over the simplest things beyond what I’ve seen here.

Ok, here’s a potential problem. You recycle some cans you’ve used for shooting, each can has 1orv2 mg of lead. They get melted down into a 1000 kg pig of aluminum.  The pig is found to have .5 ppm of lead and is rejected

The vaporization point of lead is only a little higher than the melting point of aluminum. The lead vaporize and not contaminate the aluminum.
