making bismuth shot?

Does anyone make their own bismuth shot, or lead shot? I've been looking at the littleton machine and emailed them to see if it can make larger sizes then 6. Are there any other machines out there?

Also if you do make your own bismuth, where do you get your tin and bismuth from?

You can buy bulk bis for cheap at I have not tried to make the shot as of yet but I am thinking serously about it, due to the price of shells today. I know you can cast them in different casts from 00 to #10 BB, it casts similar to lead shot. Hope that helps someone in the future.
