Ho scelto la traduzione "tecnica" del residuo della colata di formatura, perche' mi sembra il piu' probabile.

SPRUE
The channel in the bullet mold through which the molten lead is poured to form a projectile. Also the tiny projection of lead on the projectile left where the sprue plate cut the sprue away from the missile. This small projection is supposed to be loaded upward in the muzzle-loader for round-ball-shooting rifles.

SPRUE: An overflow of metal poured through the gate in a mold to cast a projectile. The sprue was later chiseled or cut off while finishing the projectile.

Questo glossario non riporta la traduzione di sprue ma mi sembra comunque molto interessante.
