Sorry if I am getting too anal about this, fellas... but: I just got a sweet new SAECO mould for my 45-70 - it's just a round nose 500 grainer. I am a noob at casting and have only had cheap Lee dies - and the last one ended up in the garbage after only a couple weeks! This new mould... hooo boy, I can tell just by looking at it that it is a BIG step up from the Lee's.
If I understand it correctly all I gotta do is degrease it, and smoke it with candle soot and fly at it, right? Is there a preferred degreaser you old hands are using? I am just pleased as punch with this new mold and would like to start off right!
Your two cents is, as always, sincerely appreciated!
