    Mine was 30+ lbs of a mix of 200 gr and 230 gr boolits, running both molds at the same time. The final count was almost 1,000 boolits.

    I run my Lee upside down and go fairly quickly, but nowhere as fast as you. Of course I have to watch my timing or I might get bit by the press. Don’t ask me how I know. Thanks for posting your video.

    By the way my first trip to Goodwill searching for pewter I found a couple of items that were stamped Sterling... no good for alloying.

    I weigh the pile and divide boolit weight into it to get within a close estimate.

    I was always a fireworks junkie when I was a kid, mostly bottle rockets and fire crackers. Then I was lucky to get to live in Japan from 13-16 years of age. The currency rate was 360 Yen per dollar back then, so that in addition to their fireworks...

    At work was introduced to someone and first thing I asked him was got any lead you don’t need. Everyone in my department knows I cast boolits and look for lead. This guy looked surprised, and I was equally surprised when he said he did. His...

    Hey Dennis, checked my mail box and found your FRB full of patches. They look really nice. Although you said 1 1/2”, I figured that might be a mistake, and turns out that they are actually 2 1/2” which is what I was hoping for since I’ll be using...

    I have one of Lee’s cheapest bare bones press , mounted upside down, to size boolits with. I have found that mounting it upside down seems to make sizing easier and faster. There are several posts about doing so .

    I was going to cast a bunch of 230 grain projectiles this afternoon, but was just need to find that the lid head blown off of my bucket of lead and got slightly damp. Looks like it might be a couple of more days down the road before I melt these.

    Stumbled onto this thread and find it very interesting. I started using cast iron a year or two ago and wish I had started sooner. Every once in a while I get something stubborn on a pan that leaves traces after I thought I got it all. Think I’ll...
