I use wheel weights about 99 % of the time for sinkers and any bass jig I will be painting. I do have a 5 pound chunk of lead I got at a plumbing supply house I use every now and then for jigs I bass fish with and won't be painting.
But, the wheel weights are the way to go. I got a battery box full (totally full) of wheel weights one time. It took me years to make a dent in that many weights. Just be careful if you have never used these if some of them have a lot of grease on them. I have had a number of flame ups with those, but mostly the greasy one's just make a lot of smoke. You can skim off the little metal clips and old slag with a kitchen spoon before pouring sinkers.
good luck
