    I hope you win the lottery or something so I can live vicariously through you casting with a magma pot . I understand when I finally decided to get a pro-melt I discovered that they stopped production driving prices even used prices up , so I...

    Paying attention , there are a few states in the U.S. that are banning lead boolits . I am surprised that brass molds are working , but that is nice . Please keep us updated as you continue with the testing . Nice custom pot also .

    You seem to be becoming a more consistent caster from casting and checking your progress so it's a win / win .

    The only change I would make is - I would have started 35 years ago . My point is get started , everything is a learning experience as long as you learn from the mistakes . A lee 4/20 pot is a very useful tool at a modest cost .

    If you have griping issues just sorting a thousand pieces of brass could be a problem along with resizing , working the primer pocket , trimming , cleaning up the trimmed necks , Squeezing the trigger a 1000 times .

    You will get it figured out , just keep at it . You can set a piece of steel plate on a electric burner to preheat your mold just to try it .
