2 Pots & 3 Moulds

In this casting video I wanted to throw in something I’ve never attempted before. Trying to handle 3 single cavity moulds in one casting session and 2 of them Hollow Point moulds, but there’s a caveat to that…two different blends of lead in the pots, one an 11BHN general purpose pistol fodder lead, and the other an 8 BHN lead for the Hollow Points.
It was almost a calamity of errs but all turned out in the end…give’er a look, see what you think and don’t forget to leave a comment and a thumbs up…heheee…I hope!

Great video Charlie you make it look easy.!! But I know it isn’t you just stayed steady through it all. But on a sidenote with you working those two pots and three moulds I thought you were going to break into the Macarena.

That is surely some thirsty work all right! You are the definition of Old Pro, nice work. You are more picky than I am. I dont care about wrinkles.
By the way, your hat needs a hair cut…

Well look at the master at work. Though Charlie about pissed me off in this video “this filming is for the birds” I thought to myself no way Charlie is going to leave us hanging right there, but he came back 🤣

As you know, I just got my first bottom pour pot. I was so happy with those neat little sprues that I didn’t see the harm in dropping them back in the pot. Well, it wasn’t long and I had boogers on my bullets. Should have waited a week and watched your video before tried it. 👍

The new mold handle guide on the hot plate is awesome. They get a bit precarious balancing otherwise. Always new things to learn from Charlie. Ole Dogs can *teach* new tricks just fine. Thanks for braving the juggling session on-camera!

Anyone thinking about casting with one of these old hollow point molds would do well to watch a master use these!

Just the truth. You know me, no 🐃💩, just good information and techniques.
