Can I afford to cast my own bullets? What are the start up costs? Does it make good financial sense? In this second episode of "Bacon Economics", we take a brief look at the benefits of melting your own lead.
This is a chat while casting up the pumpkin ball Lee projectiles. Like in my other videos, this too comes with a disclaimer that these are for my use and I assume all risk. Don’t try this at home.

‘SIZING CAST PROJECTILES’ . . . From Lube-Sizing to Lee push through to an Upside Down Press . . . “What?”
‘In the beginning…’ I started casting and ‘Lube-Sized’ my rifle/pistol projectiles…back then, the choice of lube was a hot topic and there were many heated exchanges about which lube would allow particular advantages. Some lubes required a ‘heater’ to be installed under the Sizer, some not. ‘Leading’ of the barrel was a problem when the […]
