    Not cast boolits, but certainly red. A mid 70's Hornady DL 266 shot shell loader 12/20 gauge.

    OK I have not cast boolits in a while but my Grandfather taught me 50 years ago how to do it quick and dirty. I broke every rule on casting these. I used a map gas torch to heat lead (pure lead from orisolo of this forum) in my pouring ladle and preheat my mould (Lyman 2520 2 cavity 52 grains round nose). I used no thermometer and no fluxing of the lead. Yea I told you down and dirty. Given this they did turn out very well and shoot well in my AirForce .25 Condor. Of course I do not plan to use this method of casting but it did satisfy my impatient nature that occured when I received new lead and a new mould.

    The red barn that houses the casting and reloading equipment (though setup is still in process) and the range backstop.
