WTB bullet casting equipment

I'm looking to get started casting my own bullets and figured I'd see if I could save a few bucks by going with some used stuff. If you have any thing you no longer use or need let's talk. I currently have nothing so pots, molds or any other items that you have collecting dust are fair game for me.

How about this? I used it a few times, but don't like it much. It's in good shape in it's own box with original handles, etc.

First thing is to buy the Lyman Handbook of Cast bullets. Second is to
start looking on ebay for used equipment.

Very generous offer armoredman. Jonjon00, if you could pm me a mailing address I can send you one of my .44 molds. It is a Lee 2 cavity 429 200 grain RF, that drops absolutely beautiful bullets at 205 grains and .431 diameter with my alloy. I already have three other .44 molds one of which is a MP mold that I can throw a pin in if I want RF bullets.

And the post office strikes again. I had a package returned to me, empty, ripped open, sent out a bit ago. Guess who's it was...never made it there. Dammit.
