    Had trouble with saw dust in the Lee bottom pour pot, went to bees wax to keep other stuff out of the bullets while casting. Use saw dust melting with the propane bunner on the big melting pot but not on the casting pot. With the Master Caster...

    bstone5 replied to a thread reloading the 357 SIG in Cast Boolits
    The Accurate 35-120G also woks well in the 357 SIG. I size to 357 after powder coating then a home made gas check is installed. Have shot many in a 375 SIG. Use the Lee crimp die for a small crimp so as not to damage the powder coat material on...

    I size after powder coating. The method I use is cast, powder coat as cast and then size the power coated bullet. A little lube on the coated bullet helps thru the Lee Sizer. Hope others indicate their process. I have an old Lee press mounted...

    Still have a field manual from the USMC I got in 1965 while going thru prison camp school while in Okinawa. That school was a tough time, especially when the other Marines were trying to hunt you down.

    For me a gas checked bullet will shoot better and the barrel will be a lot cleaner shooting powder coated bullets with a gas check. I made the gas check makers and now install a homemade gas check on all powder coated bullets. All of the cast...
