I had a new friend stop by today I had mentioned that I just received my replacement 6 cavity 9mm mold from lee today. Lee does a good turnaround for getting things back to you. They learned how to cast bullets . I feel they had a good time doing it. I showed them how to "smoke the mold" a very important tip to help ease the bullets releasing from the mold. I explained some of the hazards of working with molten lead. how it is very important to have adequate ventilation , use gloves and to keep moisture away. Quite a long time ago my son-in-law came across some wheel weights for me. They looked fine. But beware not is all as it looks. I started to use them and low and behold, a hot molten volcano shot out at me and i ended up with second degree burns on my leg and ankle. ( Was he trying to get rid of me? (ha-ha) . Well as I have said to various people, experience is a cruel teacher. So I took an old pair of jeans and made a set of chaps. POINT of THIS BEWARE Take all the precautions and even double check, Then I showed them how to setup my 550 for some 357 magnums. I hopefully think they enjoyed learning these different steps involved in reloading.
