    What kind of mold do you have that casts 130gr GC bullet? It seems a bit high velocity for this weight unless its +P or longer barrel for 38 spl. At this velocity I wouldn't worry about GC, I shoot 9mm faster without GC. I am looking myself for...

    There are designs around made from plexi glass with a band saw and drill press to make a turnplate and bullet flipper plate. Then use a bucket to make the housing. Bullet flipper plate will be stationary its what catches the bullet noses and moves...

    Exactly, if your gas checks are costing 2-3 cents each, might as well stock up on factory ones. The aluminum ones I did the math once, if I buy 50 foot roll for max savings it was 8 gcs per penny in 30 cal and its a lifetime supply. I wonder...

    A typical shank on 44 mag is .400 so .009 + .400 + .009 = .418 and your bullet diameter is .429 - .430 sized. So if your gas check doesn't seal the base - what good does it do and how do you keep it on? I can't even keep .010 on 30 cal to stay...

    Zinc is softer than copper and factory uses copper gas checks plus Zinc is known to have self lubricating properties. I doubt our gun range allows anyone to mine lead in WA. I don't go to our gun ranges as they don't allow chronographs, I prefer...

    I shamelessly stole the idea from a shot maker I saw. It was designed that way so you could keep the head pressure steady on the dripper. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    One of my future projects is to mount a 20lb bottom pour pot above another 20lb pour pot. So the top pot can fill the bottom. Then reload the top and cast away while the top melts. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    I have these mini bread pans that cast a large ingot. I use it when I pre mix alloy. 2 ingots will fill my Lee 20lb bottom pour pot. Call me lazy. I also use em when I drain the pot for a different alloy. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    Well... it's more time consuming because you have to do minimum 2 coats, but you don't have to worry about bullets sticking so you don't have to worry about putting them on bases because there is no marks left from the tray. It goes on very uniform...

    The whole pot shouldn't burn out, just a heating element and those are not that expensive to replace, well at least with Lee that I tried.

    I have Pro Melt, it leaks worse than my 20lb Lee :( but I like the pot. I tried to sand the plunger at an angle but it didn't stop.

    Try Hi-Tech coating instead of powder coat, it's much more uniform and thinner.
