casting bullets
      #244645 - 06/08/14 11:37 AM

I picked up a Lee 10 lb bottom pour pot, 190 lbs of various miced lead and a few molds. Wish me luck and say good bye to me remaining brain cells. Any suggestions from experienced casters?

A friend of mine up near Natural Bridge casts his own, and the biggest advice I saw from him was to do it outside.

A gun is like a parachute, if you need one and don't have one, you'll prolly never need one again.

Don't start now or ever.

If you start dropping good bullets, it turns into an addiction worse than krack.
