That looks like something I may have seen in the Walking Dead.Last week I did something I thought I would never do again.
For years I cast lead bullets for most of my pistol calibers and a few rifle calibers (M1 Carbine for example).
But for years now the bullet casting setup has just been collecting dust in the barn.
Good retail cast bullets became so inexpensive it wasn't worth my time to cast my own. So I would keep in stock about 10,000 38, 9mm, 45, etc commercial bought lead bullets.
Last week, I don't know why, I dusted off the lead melting pot and 9mm and 38 Special bullet molds and cast several thousand bullets.
To my surprise I enjoyed the bullet casting. Plus it increased my lead bullet stash by several thousand.
Then, surprise two.
I found, after loading some and shooting them, a particular cast 9mm bullet shoots good in 38 Special.
So I continued to cast and load a thousand plus 9mm bullets for 38 Special.
I ran out of 38 Special brass.
Meaning that I have, I don't know how many thousand rounds of 38 Special caliber ammo loaded.
If this bullet casting continues to be fun I may even organize and dust off this bullet casting table..............no, no sense going crazy.
