Think I will crank out a few more.


Recommended Posts

When I am not moving snow, I am casting soft black powder bullets. Did about 100, 415 grain, .54 Cal minies for the rifle, no pics. Then these 220 grain solid base, hollow points for the Ruger old army cap and ball. Have a new mold coming for .50 minies.

I’ve poured a few round balls and some egg sinkers for duck decoys. Going to do a lead hammer pour for my FIL like the corvettes originally came with for knock offs.

I need one for .501 pistol.

Looking at a Lee.

Would rather have steel but aluminum will have to do.

Casting bullets is therapeutic!

I just bought a Lee 90472 on Ebay. 50 cal minie for a rifle. My .457's are sweet in the Ruger revolver. Closer to a 44 mag than a 45 long colt.

I just loaded up on some molds last fall.  NOE four cavity in .314 for my 303, Lee six cavity 358 158 gr, Lee 2 cavity 9mm in both 125 and 88 grs.  When I get some time I plan on squeezing some out.  I'm going to try powder coating them to avoid leading.
