Thanks for the info. Did a little casting 40+ years ago and I am accumulating equipment and lead to start again. Used a Coleman stove, a 10# lead pot, a dipper, and a single cavity 250gn 45 Colt Lee mold, then pan lubed.
I just acquired a Lee bottom pour pot and a couple of two cavity molds. I have about 20# of linotype and 20# of Lyman #2 from back then. Recently acquired some range lead ingots from our club and have been raking the pond dam where I shoot at the farm for range lead.
When the weather cools off and I get things all together I am looking forward to trying again.
