    It’s so much easier to use a trenching shovel to stir in flex and pull out trash.

    That sure looks like a heavy duty working LPG tank for smelting Pablo

    Yesterday I smelted a couple of buckets of WW's I had gathered up, and got about 130 pounds of nice ingots, then turned some of them into Lyman #2 alloy, 90 pounds worth. Today I just finished about 16 pounds of 311299's, size and lube them tonight.

    I cast for about three hours today before I had to pack up for a road trip...
    I cast about 25-30#, @ 10-12 BHN. My new NOE mold was flawless! The I cast also some RCBS 210 swc & 358 170 TC from a Saeco mold.

    I knocked out some RCBS 09-124-CN's for Son Jim, and a few MP 311-180's for me, or GD Kelly & pal who are interested in getting into reloading. Will send them equipment to get started...

    27.2 pounds of TL452-230-TC. About 830 bullets.



    My first and favorite mold. 3 pours and the wrinkles are gone. Most of the bullets fall out when I open the mold, the other 1 or 2 drop out with a light shake.

    Well, it was two days ago, but... couple hundred 356-120 TC and some Karabiners out of Lee’s fine reproduction mould for 8x57. Those drop at about .327” and require real force to size them down to .324”. They weigh out at almost 235 GR. with lube and gas check. The Lee 9s are just a great all around boolit, can be used in just about anything .38

    I hope you mean .327, not .227.

    Me and a buddy have plans to cast today. I have a steel work bench in the shop thats big and sturdy enough for 3 or 4 guys to cast on and we get together pretty often. I'll probably get the H&G 503 out and he will probably cast 9mm's from a Lyman mold.

    Today I tried my NOE .22 pellet mould for the first time. Tough to keep it hot enough, only a handful of keepers.

    Cast about 150 358156's from my single cavity mold. It's pretty slow but I like that boolit

    I cast a batch of 45's using the single cavity Ideal 452460 I acquired from a lady who was cleaning out her father's reloading stuff. Alloy is range scrap plus "some" tin. For consistency I started molding my salvaged pewter into nuggets using a 311284 mold. I use a little Lee dipper pot. In a pot of lead, I throw in one "boolit" of tin, which really helps the fill-out. I shoot these in a new-to-me Star BM. I didn't know they made them in 45 ACP until I saw this one in the LGS.

    Broke in my new MP 311410 Hp with small pins today, heated on hot plate then cast once lead was at temp. Mold was awesome from the first pour till the last. Cast for about 2hr and drained my little Saeco 24 pot twice. Now let's hope they work in the 300 blkout.
