Casting Question

Hey Ya'll Happy New Year!

I just cast up some .58cal REAL boolits. I got good fill out and the bullets look good except there is some like cloudy discoloration on them. I have a 10lb Lee production pot with the bottom spout. I usually melt the lead on Hi then I turn it down to 6 and flux and heat the mold (Lee 2 cavity Aluminum mold). I don't have a thermometer yet. Any tips? I think they are shootable just wondering about the color of them. Do I have the metal too hot?

Thanks guys
