I originally wanted a bullet mold which I could use to cast a heavy 300blk bullet which was easy to cast, coat, load, and shoot for plinking in my 300 blk AR15 at subsonic speeds. I tried a few of the already available molds but had feeding issues, undersized issues, boat tail issues, or issues […]
I haven't been able to do any bullet casting, reloading, or make any trips to the gun range in about 3 months. I finally had a chance to do all three, so I grabbed the mold for one of my favorite bullets, the Lyman 429421, which is Elmer Keith's famous bullet for the .44 Special and .44 Magnum.
I have always used card tables or other temporary tables to do my bullet casting on. I have now upgraded to a dedicated bench, and this one comes with storage for all of my bullet molds and other casting gear.

I go through the entire process of casting, powdercoating, loading, and shooting some hard cast round nose bullets using the high quality NOE bullet mold for my 10mm handguns. I had wanted a round nose bullet for 10mm plinking loads. Something that would feed simply and flawlessly in each of my 10mm handguns and carbines. This bullet mold seems to do the trick.

I am casting round balls for loading in my revolvers. I purchased these single ball brass molds from Jeff Tanner at ballmoulds.com
I'm looking forward to loading these to shoot in .44 Special, .44 Magnum, and .45 Colt as both single ball and duplex loads.
In this video I show most of the steps from start to finish on how I make one of my favorite milk jug exploding 45-70 loads. All the details should be in the video, but if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here and I will respond as quickly as I […]
My first good bullet casting session. Used a Lee TL356-124-2r 9mm and a Lee TL452-230-2r bullet mold. Once I got use to it, it was very fun. Jesse B OutdoorsGuns, Gear, Knives, and Outdoors. These are some of my favorite things besides my family.

Today, I show in this video the entire process from start to finish how I cast, powder coat, load, and shoot some 250gr coated cast lead hollow points in the 44 magnum. This is one of my "go to" loads for blasting milk jugs without much recoil. These loads are perfect for maximum explosion with minimal recoil--great for those milk jug duels with the buddies. Got questions? Feel free to leave me a comment below, and I will do my best to answer it!

In this casting video I wanted to throw in something I’ve never attempted before. Trying to handle 3 single cavity moulds in one casting session and 2 of them Hollow Point moulds, but there’s a caveat to that…two different blends of lead in the pots, one an 11BHN general purpose pistol fodder lead, and the […]
Here is my entry into the Taco 2000 subscriber drawing. Thanks to Full.Lead.Taco for encouraging us all to get out and experiment to see how we would continue our hobbies in the face of the demise of civilization as we know it.
Today is the day. First time casting bullets. I am using a Lee 4 20lb pot. A NOE HTC358-133-RN-BO5 2 cavity mould. I have several pounds of processed wheel weights that I will be using. My first session this morning, about 50% were acceptable, and the second session after lunch about 85-90% were looking good.
For this video, Evan decided that I needed some help finishing up all that lead melting--so he volunteered to come help me finish processing my scrap into ingot form. I Had a lot of lead, and it took a lot of time to process it--but it was exciting and relaxing all at the same time. Evan had a new scrap lead processing setup that he wanted to test out, so we go over his setup briefly in the video...
