Gun Fun, Reloading Edition
Saturday is my day off, most weeks, and today was spent largely in the garage. I was trimming and priming a load of .30-06 brass as part of a process to convert some corrosive ammo into non-corrosive and get rid of some Berdan primed brass. Once that was done, it was on to the lead smelt.
Aside from reloading, I also am practicing lead bullet casting. When I go shooting, I pick up whatever scrap lead I can find downrange. When I get home I put this into a small bowl used exclusively for the purpose, and when enough is collected I melt it, apply a flux to remove the impurities, fish out any copper, and pour it into the mold. Today I was just casting ingots, for later use. It turns out I had a little less than expected, but I did manage to cast about 6 ounces of lead into a smooth, shiny ingot. That represents approximately 17 bullets.
