Items that contain Lead can be found by looting. The list of items that contain Lead is very small. Lead Fishing Weights and Lead Trophies are the only items you will find by looting. Additionally, using a tool such as a Wrench, Ratchet, or Impact Driver on vehicles will give you a chance to yield a Lead Car Battery.
Scrapping these items will give you 75% of the lead contained within them. However, smelting in a forge will give you 100% of their lead content. Therefore, smelting is the most efficient way to get lead from these items.
