First Bullet Casting Session

It’s my first Saturday off in 2 months and I’m home alone. Time to start bullet casting. This is my first time using the Lee 4-20 pot and the Lee 358-140 SWC bullet mold. I had some wheel weight lead that I have been ordering from Ebay. Experienced casters, tell me what I did right […]

For Lee 4-20 pot, you need around 1.5 inch riser with the NOE hollow point mold fuzztfork8Began reloading in 1976; casting in 1977 when good lead wheel weights were everywhere..There is something about making your own and being self-sufficient, that intrigued me.

Making 9’s

Today is the day. First time casting bullets. I am using a Lee 4 20lb pot. A NOE HTC358-133-RN-BO5 2 cavity mould. I have several pounds of processed wheel weights that I will be using. My first session this morning, about 50% were acceptable, and the second session after lunch about 85-90% were looking good.

Building the PID Temperature Controller from Johnny’s Reloading Bench and Installing the PID Thermocouple in my Lee Pro 4-20

Following are two videos that I have recorded and previously posted on YouTube concerning the PID Temperature Controller I use with my Lee 4-20 casting pot.  I based my PID design on the excellent instructions provided by Johnny's Reloading Bench.  Since he did such a great job instructing, these videos are geared more at demonstrating my assembly process.  I have been using this setup now for the last year and have not had one complaint about it.  It has worked flawlessly for me so far.
