That Lyman kit is a very good start for casting black powder bullets. Run pure lead for those cap&ball pistol conicals.

Forget that lee ladle. It's good for stirring the alloy/lead, but it pours poorly.
The Lyman ladle is what's called a bottom-pour ladle. The lead comes from UNDER the top surface of the liquid lead, lots of junk floating on the surface that can get included in your boolits.

There's better options out there for the eventuality of making handgun and rifle boolits. A good one is the 20 pound lee pro 4-20, 65 bucks on midway;
