    I have all three, aluminum, iron & brass. All work well for me, but for quality boolits the iron molds from RCBS are hard to beat. Yeah, only 2 cavity, but I'll take quality over quantity every time.

    I cast outside at temps way below freezing with my Promelt with no issues. There is probably a temp limit, but you'll never see it living in Alabama. Antarctica maybe? I just layer up, and keep my molds heated on a hot plate.
