Greetings from central PA.


That sure is a pretty little PA setting Jack. And that collection of Yammies ain't too shabby either.

Lead going for about a buck a pound. It's the shipping that'll kill ya.

Grandpa use to cast his handgun bullets; you need a Brinell hardness of 15-17 (unless ur gonna copper coat 'em.)

BTW: Don't breath the fumes when you melt it down.

I didn't have a hardness tester but the linotype alloy was going over 1000 fps in my 45LC Blackhawk with no barrel leading.

Gas-cutting is generally caused by bullets that are too small or a chamber throat that is bigger than the cylinder allowing gas to get by the bullet and "cut" the lead making it soft around the base. If everything fits correctly, you can easily push 15 bn lead to 1200 or better. I used to push gas checked 200 grain lead in my IHMSA gun to 1800 fps with no leading.

That was my biggest concern.........next to handling it. But then again, am I really worried about lead poisoning at my age.

Maybe I should just stick with copper jacket.

Melt and cast outside with either a breeze or a low powered fan blowing the smoke away from you.

You will get hot.

The worst thing that you can do is let a drop of sweat fall into the molten lead.

IT WILL EXPLODE ! ! !

I never wore gloves (but would now) and I have the scars to demonstrate.

Wear glasses and a long sleeve, cotton, tee shirt. Absolutely NO synthetics - if the lead splatters and hits polyester, it will melt into your skin. Tends to be a skosh painful.

Take your time and have absolutely NO distractions.

If you cast in a well ventilated area and wash your hands before sucking on your fingers, lead poisoning is not a problem.

Even if you do suck on your fingers without washing them, cigarettes probably will(maybe already have) do more harm to you then the lead.

I think the most dangerous thing about molten lead is the possibility of spills or splashes. It's really freakin'' hot and takes a long time to cool off.
And like Mike says, you don't want any moisture getting in it.

Ain't they purdy?

There is a product available from Brownell's called "D-Wipes" that comes in both toweletts and lotion that is designed to specifically remove lead from your skin. And, since I worked at a range and had to get b-annual lead checks, I proved that using D-Wipes was effective.

I'm in need of CCI 550 magnum primers...........with everyone freaking out, it may be months before I can chunk any 357.

38s will have to work for now.

Back to the basement to prep more cases.
