    Lyman and Lee make great molds and equipment. The Lyman "Cast Bullet Handbook" manual is informative. Below is a link to a forum. This particular thread talks about all important lubricating.

    I have been casting bullets for decades.

    The single best resource I have ever seen on casting bullets is Glen Fryxell's free book.

    Cast Boolits - Dedicated To The World Of Cast Bullets!

    Although its already been mentioned above, this one Cast Boolits really is the place to start.
    All subjects about cast bullets are there, along with group buys for molds, casting setups, loads for about any caliber and even a special projects sections that has some pretty neat stuff in it.

    Its a gold mine of info and the people there are pretty helpful. I've been on it for years.
