I recently got the bug to cast my own big bore airgun ammo and bullets. I had been sitting on the fence for a couple months, and dodged the urge to buy a melter, lead, bullet or boolit molds, .45 and .58 lead round ball molds, sizers, etc. But I fell off that fence in a moment of weakness, and ordered the whole mess up.
Primary reason for getting into big bore airgun bullet casting is that it is difficult to find big bore ammo in sizes such as .45 or .58. When you do find big bore ammo you have few options to choose from, and it generally is cost prohibitive. Read that if you may as Expensive to shoot your big bore airguns.
Big Bore Airgun Ammo Bullet Casting Equipment:
- Lee Pro 4 20lb bottom pour lead melting pot or furnace
- Lee .58 caliber lead round ball mold

As usual more to come…
