I always start off with my lead very hot with a cold mold to get perfect bullets right from the start. Then I turn it down after a few pours so that the lead cools while the mold heats up. If you keep the lead too hot, it will oxide much more quickly and cause all kinds of dross to form that will need to be fluxed back in more often.
