your finding appear to run counter to scientific norms.
my understanding is when tin in alloyed into lead, it becomes homogeneous, therefore cannot separate into layers, as they are alloyed in the molecular level
Could you do one more experiment?
Cast, using the stir technique, X number of bullets from the top of the alloy pot, and X number from the bottom , and test for tin content.
then let your lead pot sit for 8 hours or more, then dip X bullets from the top, and bottom pour X, and test for tin
I'd be interested in the results
this has me scratching my head.... vodka, a similar alloy doesn't have the alcohol separate out of water...
