Bullet casting and hand loading in the movies

I watched the movie Tremors 2 on AMC the other day. Noticed the reloading equipment in this scene.

I think there were several Dillon products seen in the first Tremors movie also. Anyway, it got me thinking of other movies where reloading or bullet casting occupied a scene. I know there's more, but here are a couple I could think of right off:

One of the Death Wish movies showed Charles Bronson hand loading. I don't remember what the equipment was.

The scene in The Patriot where Mel Gibson was melting his son's toy soldiers into musket balls was kind of a tear jerker.

What else can you think of?

Closest thing I can think of is sheriff Brody modding his jhps with poison and wax.
Critical Bill of Things to do in Denver..... had a bunch of reloading stuff in his room.

That is what I was thinking of. Briar Gates with his Lee loader. There were a few Steven Seagal movies with reloading in it too.

In the movie Jack Reacher the shooter is seen hand loading rifle rounds at the opening of the movie.

Not hand loading but the intro to Lord of War is a great sequence.

He was loading .44 Automag on a RCBS single stage press.

The Patriot, just watched it. Mel Gibson takes a little tin soldier out of his pocket and melts it down on the battle field to make a musket ball out of it.

Great movie. Great scene. As I recall he does that a couple times in the movie. At one point, he's down to the last toy soldier and he ponders on it for a moment before he melts it down, probably remembering his son. Great movie.

If we open it up to TV, there was the meat bullet in CSI.

"The Last Hunt" and "Nevada Smith" both had short reloading sequences in them. Both excellent movies BTW.

Most recent in memory is "Sweetwater" where the casting of bullets is essential to the solving of a double murder.

On an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer a werewolf bounty hunter is shown casting silver bullets in the back of his van.
