Sunday Morning Casting

Well Mrs M&P is off to work, and I have this last day of my vacation left. The pot is heating up as I type. Looks like I am low on .452 200 grain SWC. I hope to knock out a few before the great furnace in the sky makes it literaly hotter than Hades here in Central Texas.

I hope your having fun. It is humid enough here that I started sweating just letting the dog out. Then again, it rained half or more of yesterday and started off doing it again this morning. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the rain one bit we need it. Just wished we didn't have to have it hanging in the air after the fact when the sun pops right back out 30 minutes later.

I am all set up and going to lube mine up here in about 10 minutes. I poured up a full 20# pot of them not long ago and figured they have aged plenty. I'm setting up the 4x4 for loading tomorrow after work if it isn't too blamed hot when I get in. It should only take an hour or so to knock out 2-300 which is plenty for now.
