    Thanks for the offer BJung I purchased a toaster oven at Walmart for 20.00 and have some bullets cast from the Lee molds they worked fine for me.
    I have some powder coat from Harbor Freight and used some plastic BBs they don't look pretty but have the coating I think will work.
    I also have some lubed so I'm waiting for a good time to get to the range and see what the results are.

    Happy

    I'm happy to read that you took up PC. Have fun and show everyone what your printed groups look like. If Harbor Freight doesn't work for you, ask local PC shops if they have paint they no longer use.

    Caster and shooter of lead bullets for almost thirty plus years now and it's pretty much all I ever shoot in all my rifles and handguns. I started out using Lee two cavity molds and probably have about twenty of them as well as several six cavity Lee mold of designs I use a lot.

    I've only ever had one bad mold from Lee it was probably just bad QC on that particular one, I just replaced it as they were so cheap and the replacement was good to go, kept the other one for some parts. I have no problem with Lee molds if they make a design that fits my shooting needs, and all mine cast great bullets.

    I also have NOE, Lyman, Arsenal and M&P molds that cast bullets that the Lee molds don't cover, probably have around twenty or so of those as well, hard to keep up when you have a few. Most all my pistol molds are plain base except for a couple HP molds for HV 357 Mag. loads like my NOE clone of the Lyman 358156, all my rifle molds take a gas check except for my Arsenal 4 cavity .311" 170 gr. Ranch Dog mold that cast two gas check and two plain base bullets. I usually leave the gas check off for low velocity plinking loads, but put them on for everything else.

    I have and can lube bullets about every way possible, started out pan lubing back in the day, then moved on to using Lee Alox and later Alox/JPW lube, also have a RCBS Lube-a-matic and all the sizing die I use and enough lube to last me awhile, always nice to have a backup way to lube bullets if necessary.

    For the past several years, I've pretty much powder coated everything, it has lots of benefits but I like that I coat my bullet and store them in less than ideal conditions and not have to worry about lube degradation due to time, heat or cold. I started out using the HF Red and Yellow, both coated well when sprayed on but not so well using the shake and bake process, guess I to picky but I just didn't like the results so I found a few colors from Eastwood and Smokes over on the Cast Boolits forum that have served me well and I just stuck with those ever since.
