    I used to count them but when you us an 8 cavity mold there is a pile of bullets in short order. I usually cast to pots full or close to it, somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 pounds. I usually cull as I am sizing and lubing. On the other hand if...

    LenH replied to a thread when to size and lube in Cast Boolits
    Sometimes life gets in my way and I don't get to run them through the sizer right away. I found some the other day that I had cast back in the fall. I got things all set up and ran them trough the sizer and put them in a sealed container ready to...

    I have had a ProMelt for a while now, that replaced a Lee. I have built a PID and it just made the thing better. I used the PID with the old Lee too, but the ProMelt is a great furnace. I bought mine used but didn't get that kind of deal, but the...
