Sweet, they look good. I have a new Lee 20 pound bottom pour I can't wait to try also.

Mine's new also, and pleased as well, sure beats the pot and ladle method. The Lee 45-200 SWC's came out great as well, Little problem with trash in the spout, used bees wax and Lee's product. More tomorrow. :)

pdshooter,
looks like a lyman 4-cavity 452460 mold...love the bullet!

i'd be lying if i said i'd turn down a steal on an rcbs 20 lb pot, but lee's 20 pounder costs about 1/4 the price and works well. i made a couple of improvements to mine:
i wired the pour lever's adjusting screw to the metering rod to keep it from slipping out of the notch at the top of the rod and i clamp visegrips on the wired-together assembly, adding weight to to minimize dripping.
