Subject: Question on Casting Thin Wall Lead

We are looking into casting a thin lead wall (0.1 inch) cylinder with a length of 1 inch which is capped with a 1 inch hemispherical solid.
We have not done any casting of thin lead walls before and are wondering if anyone on the list has experience with this.
Our first choice is to spin cast this type of part.
If you have done any thin wall lead casting, your input would be appreciated.
The final part must be rugged enough to survive rough handling.
