    I always cast frosty boolits. I like them.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    #MeAlso...I get my best boolits just at barely frosty temperature. Fill out is best , least internal voids.
    If mine are shiny ...I up the temperature .

    Frosty boolits = good mold temperature

    If you rub them w/ a cotton towel they become shiny. Doesn’t take long to do this. So if the frosting really bothers you just twist them in a towel after loaded in the case.

    This I didn't know. So much to learn (sure, and it doesn't amount to anything except aesthetics, but it's just one of those little things that I find interesting).

    Just remember that the temperature of the mold is controlled by the pace at which you cast much more than the temperature of the melt. Of course, the melt/pot temperature limits the mold temperature but as long as the pot is hot enough your pace is the determining factor of the mold temperature.
