I posted this in a thread a while ago, but yeah. I should have made a thread for it instead. Anyway, I have a near endless supply of copper from work. They just throw away the used up tips and cones instead of recycling them. So I was wondering how difficult it would be to cast some copper bullets. I know that copper melts at a much higher temp than lead. That is a given. But I do have a small propane forge in my shop that gets up around thirty five hundred. So melting it wont be a problem. My questions are more about the feasibility of this. Am I going to have to get different molds or anything? When buying copper jacketed or copper plated the boxes state the diameter as .451, but HC lead comes in at .452. So will using molds intended to bring lead to .452 with copper be a bad thing? Do ya still have to lube the bullets like you do with lead? I already know that if I use a lead mold that is supposed to give me 230 gr bullets with copper my weight is going to be different. But I imagine I could just come up with some different load data.
