Today's reloading adventure.

Welp casted some bullets today, then weighted and measured htem, now have the first lot lubed and curing overnight.

Was my first time using a lead melter. Some things I learned was that you need to make sure the molten lead is at the right temperature and your mold is properly cleaned and set.

Though once everything is balanced you can punch out bullets at a pretty good clip.

And here's where a quick digital scale comes in real handy so you can test each round.

Get some talcum powder and lightly dust the mold cavities with it. It will make it a lot easier to demold your bullets. If you don't have any talcum soot the cavities with a match.

That's a good idea.

I tried match soot and that lasted for only about 30 bullets or so.
