    I still have that little Lee 4# pot and have cast hundreds of bullets with a Lyman ladle and 2 cavity molds. I still use it from time to time but to cast crappie jigs. I have the 4-20 bottom pour pot also and have cast thousands with that pot and...

    In the words of Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles, Holey Underwear! I almost snotted my coffee when I read the deal about `You Have to take the lead Too'. Great find. It is evident that these fellows didn't know what they had or were just wanting to...

    You Guys and your pewter make me envious! I hardly ever find any. I would hate to melt some of the nicer pieces that you do find.[/ I hardly ever find any myself, If I am close by one of these places I'll stop in and take a quick look. I went to...

    LenH replied to a thread Old And Out Of Touch in Cast Boolits
    I belong to a shooting club that is exclusively out doors except for an airgun range in the old club house. I also shoot bullseye matches and have never considered the smoke aspect of a cast bullet. I have shot .22 Bullseye matches indoors for...

    I have cast thousands of bullets with a Lee 20 pounder and it got better with a digital controller. I see nothing wrong with those pots.

    225050[/ATTACH I found this piece yesterday at a Salvation Army store. It weighs a little less than a pound and is a bit beat up but it was less than the sticker price. I saw some stuff marked Pewterex and put it back and left it there. I stopped...

    I had about the same experience with some lead shot, it took longer to melt than range scrap.

    I made one out of plumbers strap bent double and used the bolt on the pot to anchor it. I already had the plumbers strap.

    LenH replied to a thread .45 ACP Target bullet in Cast Boolits
    The 452488 is nominally a little lighter than the H&G design and the little button nose is more rounded, Dad always felt like it fed better. The 160 grain bullet idea is intriguing. I do know that there is one course of fire he'll have to do...

    I bought the Dillon roller handle and tried to use it for a couple of loading sessions. Wend back to the original handle and still use it. I have the handle in the floorboard of my truck and can't seem to give it away.

    LenH replied to a thread .45 ACP Target bullet in Cast Boolits
    That bullet looks a whole lot like the H & G 130 swc. I used to shoot a 200 gr SWC pushed with 3.8 GR of Bullseye. As of the last 10 or 12 years I have acquired a H&G S242 160 Gr SWC. I push that bullet with 4.5 GR of Bullseye. It has less felt...

    My son is a keeper of reptiles and I have been getting into his bedding. He uses aspen shavings and that is what I have been using. It works just fine for me. He moved and took the critters with him. I got a small bundle of the stuff at Walmart for...

    LenH replied to a thread Newbie here in Casting Equipment
    And down the rabbit hole you go. Welcome to the madness. I'm glad you had someone show you the ropes. I had a mentor over 45 years ago and he is gone now but I still remember most of what he taught me, some good and some not so good. I found out...

    I was able to find a couple of pieces of pewter for a good price but a couple of weeks ago I saw a pewter tankard and they wanted way too much for it. I find a piece here and there but not a whole lot but enough to add to the stash.
