    It'd help to get a sense of scale. How big are those plates behind the pewter? If, for instance, they are twelve inches across, only the two pitchers on the top row are more than six inches tall, and all the cups, mugs, the serving ware and candle...

    Sorry I don't get it - why aren't there dimensional drawings like those I've seen on Accurate's site ( though, at this point in my casting career, it's not like I'd be able to make a more informed order if there were)?

    I've been reloading for years but casting for only one or two. To start with I got 6 banger Lee molds from Midway in all the pistol calibers I own, but found the type of bullets I eventually wanted to use were not offered. I ended up with Accurate...

    Well, I know that I am a charter BMBA member. Lake house, since this is still open, and since I want to try to increase my production of boolits for USPSA shooting by casting with two molds in rotation, please put me down for a second mold (8 cav...

    Understood. As I mentioned before, my son is grown and is acting like the adult my wife and I hoped he would be. Being newly retired, I have more free time now, much of which goes to my wife (she is deserving and I do not begrudge it at all) but...

    kevin c replied to a thread Which Lead Pot? in Our Town
    I've read here about custom and/or commercial casting pots in the forty pound range but that seems potentially very expensive. I like Ausglock's practical and relatively inexpensive solution: two Lee bottom pours set up one over the other, with...

    Son, you may have a problem here. Let me ask you a few questions, and I hope you respond frankly. Does thinking about and buying molds consume all your time and money? Are work and family suffering for your new obsession? Are you in denial about how...

    37 molds in two months. I'm short on experience with group buys, but that seems like a lot, and fast to boot.

    I got my Introduction to Boolit Casting 101 from various YouTube channels. I imagine many do the same. Still, YouTube and the internet can't always be relied on for 100% reliable information so having alternative sources is useful. And you hope...

    Thanks to all for offering your expertise! This forum has really saved me and other new casters a tremendous amount of groping around in the dark (not to say that groping around in the dark isn't a pleasant experience in the right circumstances ;^D.

    Yeah, reddog, I've already asked my casting mentor if there's a local BMBA (Boolit Mold Buyers Anonymous) chapter I can join... So (again a newby question), lots of pours (long or frequent casting sessions) aren't necessarily harder on the mold...

    Grmps, that's a good observation there about the weight, which is part of why I mainly bought aluminum. Still working on my technique with the 8 cavity versions from MP - I've mainly been casting from the five cavity Accurate molds, but I can...

    Ah, well, I'm just retired but still mostly in one piece, and have a grown son and a wife who's into ballroom dance but who has a husband with two left feet. She does her thing, I do mine, and we talk about it each evening, and have other things we...

    Newby questions here (I searched but mebbe used the wrong key words). I have been casting for a year or so, reading here and trying out my molds (MP 4 and 8 cav, Accurate 5 cav and the 6 banger Lee molds I first got), and am at the point where I...
