Casting Handgun bullets

All my handgun projectiles are cast on a Coleman Stove on an old hay wagon in the three-bay Tractor Shed. I cast year round in that shed and make many projectiles.

Today was a great day as I cast .38, .41, .44 and .45 projectiles out of OLD Wheel weights with a dash of Tin and all were dropped into a bucket of cold water. None of my cast bullet lead any bore, are accurate and drop game.

I have not handloaded a jacketed handgun bullet this Century.

Well I have cast a bunch. But probably going to sell most of the stuff. I have more'n a lifetimes supply cast sized lubed powdercoated etc. etc. Have some custom molds I have never used. But I did buy a Dillon 650 the other day so I can load up the 38s now..then some 9s and I can even do 40S&W....Nah not going to load the 40. Been a while since I was here.
