Thanks for the reply again. I will exchange the leads and see if the welds look any better.

C25 (Argon/CO2 mix sometimes referred to as 75-25) is by far the most commonly used shielding gas for solid wire and for a good reason. Straight CO2 can be used and is somewhat cheaper but C25 works better, a LOT better, and is well worth the extra cost.
