It’s also worth mentioning that casting your own bullet allows you to fit the bullet, ie. diameter to your particular gun. Most but not all commercial cast bullet are a one size fits all and may lead the bore and not shoot very accurately if the bullet is too small and in some instances to hard for a given velocity/pressure load.
