I cast and sized my own bullets for years but got a weak moment and sold my gear. While I recently considered getting back into it, I can get hard cast bullets plenty cheap from a small local company and it's just not worth it.
Not correct. Are you kidding? I still have a bucket of wheel weight ingots in my barn. I used a cast iron cornbread mold for them so each looks like an ear of corn with "WW" stamped on each one.
