    It is, that's part of why I bought it but I will mostly be buying ingots so it's not a huge concern. I have a turkey burner if I ever need to really smelt.

    Thanks for the help guys. I went at it again the other day and got some good pours. I made sure everything was real hot and just stayed at it for awhile. I have 100 rounds of 38 loaded up now! Still not digging the ladle though. My bench is a little...

    I tried again and I can't get any bullets to come out good. Now they look slightly out of round at the base. Also slag is constantly in the pot and attached to the ladle and if I'm not scooping it out the whole time it just keeps constantly forming....

    I guess I probably could run it. This is about the worst looking bullet. This is when there was a good amount of lead in it to, I cleaned pretty much all of it out. This was my first casting session. I'll give it another go tomorrow since I'm a...

    It's that bottom cavity. I'm thinking what it was, was me trying to peel the lead out with a metal pick. I didn't believe it at first because it kind of looked like that before. Then I got to thinking, it really can't be anything else.

    Well I already destroyed a Lee mold in about 20 minutes. When the mold was open it dipped a little too far into the pot and get some lead into the cavities. After several pours the lead never melted out and got stuck there. I went and looked at the...
