I have been casting for clse to 50yrs. I have never used anything but wheel weights, and once in awhile I put a little lead pipe I have in.

Hit the wrong button. I have never had any problem with leading, I shoot 38spl, 357 mag, 45-70 and load max loads and can shot 50 to 100 rounds before cleaning. How come you people are having so much trouble with your lead.

I use a coleman two burner stove, and run high test gas in it.
My lead pot is at least 100yrs old and the ladel to, they beloned to my wifes grandfather. Most of my molds are Lyman, I use a new Lyman sizer and lubber.
Most of the people I see on here whan to make a magnum out of the old calibers, they were not desighned to shoot 2000 fps.

And while you are there get a pair of their Welding gloves, and one of their IR themometers.
