Casting bug bit me

Well since Christmas when I started casting I have tried out several different boolit-load combos in 38 special, 2 different boolits in 357 mag, what I hope will be my standard round for 9mm Mak, and just the other day I received a used mold that I hope doubles as 9mm lugar and 38s in the mail. It is fun and rewarding to make your own ammo!

Now if the weather would just warm up a little and stop snowing I could try these out at the range!

Joe
