    These were in a box of bullet master parts but I don't think they belong. Might some kind of temperature switch or sensor. They're about 4x10 inches. Both are exactly alike.

    Got it running. Casts great. Now I have to automate my sizer. Bought 5 more sets of molds at a great price. Once I figure out which I like best will probably sell the rest. Have decided to repair the spare one for a friend. Only need pot and...

    I have been moving to the same goal. It seems like the numbers are fuzzy. Starting with O-1 tool steel, you turn to say .308. With heat treating that diameter may change, pretty much have to try, and see what happens. So far I have built a radius...

    These molds will be a great asset to the air gun industry. Suddenly a 30 cal springer could be in my future. I would pay handsomely for a 30 cal rifle incorporating mechanical recoil cancellation. Right now, a 22 caliber hunter mold would make...
