    I have an old Lyman DC 454424 with the Keith sq. lube groove. It drops bullets with no trouble. I bought mine in the early 80's in the old gray cardboard box.

    Do they look like these? They weight about 31.5 pounds and make good pistol bullets. I use a cutoff Freon tank and can only fit one at a time in it.

    Sorry for the confusion RogerDat, the lead came from dental X-Ray foils. WOW, I didn't realize those were that hard. I got a pile of it but the guy thought it was pure. I needed something to mix with some Monotype and got his whole stash. That...

    Welcome to the madness of casting, acquiring lead alloys and all the other stuff that goes with it. As stated above work with the pistol pistol calibers first. I have jumped in to the rifle end of casting and it is a challenge. I have a new mold...

    The guy told me that he has had it for a couple of years, it was nearly 160 pounds. He got it from a dentist that was going digital. He had to get rid of it to make room for a new baby. Been there and done that.

    Thanks guys, I thought it would be pure. The guy I got it from used some of it to cast some 9mm and said it worked great.

    I just bout some lead from a local guy that said it was dental lead shielding and said it should be pure lead. I tested several ingots and it tested 14.0 BNH on a Cabine tree tester. Kinda surprised me. It is from dental x-ray foil.

    LenH replied to a thread My first day in casting in Cast Boolits
    Welcome to the madness. Keep in mind that fit is king and hardness is secondary. Lead scrounging can get to be a maddening quest, I gave up on wheel weights some time ago. But I have what I need as far as alloy. It is good to have someone kind...

    I had to replaced a thermocouple that I got from he who must not be named. I removed to plug and put it on the new probe. Trouble was I had the wires reversed and it showed the temp actually dropping, it didn't take long to figure that out.

    I've been stocking up on lead and primers for a few years now. My wife laughed when they reported that 1,600 rounds was a lot of ammo for that psycho in Las Vegas. I usually keep at least 2K of .45 AP loaded at any given time and always try...

    My answer to your question is, Yes it is worth it. Although I don't have a casting machine like yours, I do have some large H & G molds 8, 6 & 4 cavity molds. and they make piles of bullets in short order. A ProMelt isn't cheap but it was worth...

    Keep in mind you don't have to have the latest and the greatest. I started out with a Lee 4# pot and a ladle. I had a couple of Lyman molds, single & double cavity. I cast hundreds if not thousands of bullets with that rig and still have that pot...
