    TRY CASTING @ 720° If you don't get fill out you need more tin/pewter. I'd suggest you keep mining the berms in your free time and build your stockpile while you can:)

    Don't forget those jackets are copper and cleaned up are worth around $1.30 a pound at the scrap yard.

    Grmps replied to a thread Lyman must hate me in Cast Boolits
    it looks like the pin is not seating completely in the mold, the C clip should be resting on the mold. I gave up on NEW Lyman products many years ago. They must have outsourced their manufacturing. Their quality /quality control has gone down the...

    Wait, I meant LEE 4 20 pot. I believe I have it up and running good now. I melted about 13 lbs of pewter blocks in it all at once. My little spout clogged up really good. I had to tighten my screw up and down pretty tight to get what ever clogged it...

    I also loaded up some lee 310's for the job as well. I told my little hunter to use which ever boolit he felt more comfortable and accurate with. We were hunting over bait so the farthest shot would have been 40 yards. If It were me Id want my...

    I had three devastator molds in a row that were finning around the hollow point area. I sent the 1st one back to the retailer and the 2nd and 3rd one went to Lyman waiting a month for the testing and returns. Both the 2nd and 3rd both finned finned...

    " one said they sell all of their used wheel weights to the scrap yard in town. " Ask how much they get, most scrap yards pay around .25˘ a pound. remember current yield after removing FE and ZN (steel and zinc) is around 60%.

    Any boolit that will kill a whitetail will kill a bear. They are thin skinned game as well. Just use a boolit that will pass all the way through so you have two bleeder holes. It's very common for bear fat to clog up the entrance and exit holes...
