    Anything under $1.00 a pound is pretty good...consider yourself lucky you have a source. As for the "new" up on the various new WWs that are now being used in the Lead and Lead Alloy forum. You have to watch out for Zinc in the...

    I'd buy them...melt them down, clean and pour into fresh ingots. You could then have it tested again if you are that concerned...but likely its just surface contamination on Linotype. Any silica (sand) will float and be removed with the dross. ...

    Sweet find...and pretty good price too. I've only melted finished letters/numbers (350 lbs worth) do you melt a pig? Do you stand it up in a big pot or do you cut it down into pieces first....just curious what your method is. I'd probably...

    I've never heard of this powder used in a bottle neck case before. I use it in 44 Mag and 357 Mag. I would think the shoulder is so minuscule on the 300 BO that is would work there...but the 8 Kurtz....maybe has more of a shoulder. I'm...

    I have the 10# Lee...I wish I would have purchased the 20#. Casting .459" 405s uses a lot of lead real fast. Someday...when this one croaks...I'll get the 20#er. redhawk

    Make a PID unit. It will read your temperature digitally. Of course it won't control the smelter if its in a pan using propane for a fuel source, but it will still read the temp. redhawk

    It can't hurt to give them a call. What alloy are you casting with? Sometimes too soft an alloy will give you smaller diameter...however, it should have produced a heavier bullet than 185gr. I've dealt with Lee in the past and they've been pretty...

    I haven't done it yet...but I do have a Lee 185 RN GC that throws at 0.312" I was thinking of sizing to 0.310". My original RCBS sizer die was 0.310" but for "J" bullets I've been sizing at 0.308" and have had good success. I think I'd change it...
