Thanks for the kind remarks guys - I haven't purchased a mold did buy some brass and dies yesterday. Haven't attempted casting yet, I have the smelter or oven and lead. Just haven't had the need to use it. May have to break down and try it since pre cast bullets are sold out at midway.

Maybe when it warms up, cold in WI currently.
