Thanks guys for all the tips. I think I'll order some cast bullets from Missouri Bullet Company. I saw some bullets there I'd like to try in my 1911 too.
You will like MBC for all of your cast needs. Just tell Brad what your intended use (Load?) and he will set you up..I've used them for a long time+I can NOT remember EVER hearing anything bad about Missouri Bullet Company..Bill..
Sorry Shade, we attended different metallurgy classes. "Smelting" of metals simply means changing alloys to a usable form. It can refer to ore separations of arsenic and antimony "Spiess". It can also apply to "Smelting" Wheel weights into muffin pans for future bullet casting.
