How to clean lead for copper and nickel plating



2004

I would like to plate onto lead shot (used in shotgun cartridges) in home. At first step I should clean the shots (removing lead oxide). What is the safe way?

Thank you very much for your comments.

Gm,

Fluoboric acid shall be employed in activating the lead surface.

Dear Shankaranarayanan,

Thank you very much for sending information. I bought some fluoboric acid and used in different percentages of it. Unfortunately the acid did not remove the lead oxide completely and did not get shiny shots which I need to have a nice and bright copper plating. If you have any experience would you please let me know.

Yours,

You can use 10 % nitric acid!

Good luck!
