Score!

Post by First Shirt » Sat Oct 07, 2017 12:24 am

Was over visiting a friend this evening, swapping some gun stuff around, and asked him if he knew where I could find some scrap lead, cheap.

He said "Is free cheap enough?"

Left with about 200 lbs of wheelweights, and 50+ lbs of linotype. Since I'm only casting for .45 ACP, .45 Colt, .38/357, and .41 Mag, this should keep me out of trouble and off the streets for a while!

Spent yesterday turning 100 lbs of wheel weights into ingots, and today (with Minion assistance) turning ingots into bullets. We now have several hundred each of .45 ACP, .45 Colt, and .38/357 bullets, and a couple hundred .30 and .284 rifle bullets. Nobody got burned, nothing got set on fire, and they may have actually learned some stuff. I'm calling it a win for the home team!

If you mix it 50/50 by weight, you should have something close to 92-6-2. :ugeek:
