I order lead solder from Mexico... It's kind of expensive, but totally worth it.
If the metal is cleaned well and properly fluxed and you use enough heat to the metal surfaces Silver flows quite well in my experience.

I use automotive grade 60 tin 40 lead or 50/50 from Roto Metals quite a bit. 50 Tin / 50 Lead-BAR-Solder-1-lb: Industrial & Scientific
