Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio network. Tonight the guys are starting over with talking about casting boolits.
- Todd Senne:It would be great if you guys could talk about the proper techniques for using measuring tools. Do you just go until it touches or do you need to push until it clamps in solid. I'm having a hard time getting consistent readings. Thoughts?
- aquiring lead.
- Wheel weights (getting harder to find as places are switching to other metals)
- other casters (Facebook Group Cast Bullets & Bullet Casting, eBay)
- recycling centers (scrap yards)
- old Linotype
- Hospitals (medical shipping containers)
- Heat source
- rendering pot (must be substantial you’re going to be putting a lot of heavy metal in the thing!)
- slotted spoon chefs grade
- safety equipment (Personal Protective Equipment aka PPE)
