I've got two of them that I use for ladel dipping of 45-70 and 38-55 BPCR bullets. I haven't really checked to see what they hold but they certainly don't hold 20 lbs of lead but probably at least 12-13 lbs. I recently cast about 300 330 gr 38-55's alternating dips between pots because I was using two different moulds, and used about 2/3's of each pot. They're also good for keeping a bottom fill filled up when using a 6 holer.

About 15 lbs brings mine to within a 1/2 inch of the top.
