Do any of you guys smelt your own lead and cast your own bullets? I have been reloading for about a year now and aside from the usual rookie mistakes (getting in a rush, failing to double check powder weight, case cleaning/trimming etc.), I have not ran into issues that I couldn't resolve or determine where/what I did wrong and I've been pretty successful at reloading... until now. Up to this point I have always bought bullets. However I tried to casting my own bullets and even skimmed off the slag/dirt once it melted. I was disapointed in my first few batches due to imperfections in the bullets(ripples and pits) because of slow pours and/or low temp. mold. After trial and error, I learned to pour what I thought were satisfactory castings and used them. It wasn't until I missed a nice whitetail that I realized there was a problem. They don't shoot straight! At 100 yards they can be as much as an 8 inch variation up to down, left to right. I am pouring 170 gr. .30-30 into a Lee double cavity mold finished off with 25 gr. of reloader 10x powder, using cci 250 primers. Mind you all 50 of the bullets were poured from the same batch of lead. No additional lead was added to the pot during smelting. Any thought or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
