Pro-Melt Casting furnace

Lyman 4500

NOE bullet molds

where can i get lead?

Local Tire shops


local indoor ranges

local outdoor ranges

Old Printing presss

what is the bhn (Brinell Hardness Number)

Use antimony or tin to increase BHN of lead.

Inexpensive to start out, you need molds, but can melt lead another way.

Use a dutch oven on a coleman stove

Lee Dipper

Water and Lead do not mix, the explosion is worse than grease and water.
