This is how I smelt range stuff (dirt,paper jackets ,unfired rounds)

I place it all in a small schedule 40 pot (8" pipe pot)with a heavy lid)

When I see smoke (temp is hi enuff to cook off any live rounds) I lift the lid off & throw in a chunk of parriffin wax ,it flashes into flames burning anything that will, then skim all the crude, then flux & stir ,flux & stir ,flux & stir !!

So far I`ve wound up with some purty soft stuff , good for a base alloy !!

My problem these days is finding time !!

Oh yeah , if the bullets are`nt melted from the jackets (rare from indoor stops)I just let em kool them peirce em with a nail& hammer.
