I don't think they make swimfeeders that big Stephen ... it'd have to be about 15cm long/ 4cm+ diameter! The beauty of Spoppers IMO is the sheer volume they can deposit, and all on the bottom.

Casting lead is very dangerous
Just please take care if you’ve not done it before.
400°c is hot enough to permanently disfigure you.
I don’t want to come across as the miserable old twit but Don’t do it unless you are geared up safely do it.
ffs never pour water over any liquid metal.
Im not the safety police but you don’t spend 20 years in the welding game without seeing some nasty burns.

It is not a good idea to pour water on any item that has a boiling/melting point higher than water and is in that state.

Some can cause issues without even being heated, strong acids or alkalines for example.
