Lead hardness

Guys.
I want to ask what hardness lead you run?
Point in case being that i shoot ringtails of approx 500 and want to try like Lyman 2 or there abouts. Good or bad idea?
Or just run like 20:1 or even 30:1?

Yeah well. After trying the whole thing out with pure lead i opted to cast some 1:2o tin ones and take it from there.
This Sharps 59/63 of mine being rather capable brings that i´ve thus far been hoovering around 80-110 grains of powder.
