      Here's a site that gives a bit of info on the castability of some
      popular Al alloys.
      There are also some other very good articles in the drop down box.
      As Lyle (LL) has mentioned some alloys he uses I would follow suit.
      The 356.0 should suit most normal applications and the A356.0 sounds
      really interesting. Alas I am still using scrap but would love to
      try some new ingot 356.0 and A356.0
      Cheers and have fun,
