    Thanks everyone

    For the knowledge you share here. I joined a couple years ago but never got moving on casting. All of a sudden I'm all in now.Three weeks os so ago, I scored two used but functional casting pots free. A Lee 10 pound bottom pour and a Lyman Mould Master. Both work great. The only problem was I only had molds for a .38/357 but no gun. I have a .45 ACP, but no molds. Studying here, I managed to pick up two new Lee two cavity molds, The Lee push through sizer, a 3 color powder paint kit from Smoke, a pencil set to check hardness, and a Goodwill toaster oven. All for under $100.00. Holy crap! I had no idea I could wind up casting and coating for so cheap. I had lead and tin and a big smelting pot already.

    Less than three weeks from the start to pretty coated bullets.

    Nuts! I just realized I'm typing this on the computer. The pictures are on my phone. I'm too lazy to re-type this, so I'll post the rest from the phone. Again, Thank You.

    Welcome to the addiction.

    Hopefully, we won't see your family doing a intervention on that TV show.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    It is a Lee 452-228-1R. The Semi is a Lee 452-200-SWC. Both two cavity. I used a mix that is around 10-11 BHN. The paint came from Smoke4320. Jet black, Signal blue, and traffic orange. Getting ready to size a few this morning to load and try out today if the weather holds.

    Just spent some time in front of the Square Deal. Ran off 10 of each for a range test if it gets warmer than the 14 degrees it is here. Click image for larger version.
