Glockman---they look frosty because they have been tumble lubed plus lighting is bad. They are actually pretty shiny.

Since all of our bullet casters will be dropping into this thread I thought I would just add this in mostly because I just remembered it.

This local guy that used to reload all of my .45 acp Lead Round Nose for me used to add a couple of feet of this into his casting Lead. It has to be HARRIS STAY-BRITE.

He passed away some years ago. Really decent older WWII Vet that used to charge me almost nothing as long as I brought him back the brass.

I would certainly always do that and I would always buy him something really nice every Christmas.

This sells for about $30.00 for a one pound roll on ebay...so it's not cheap stuff but, he swore that adding some of it to his casting metal greatly improved everything from appearance to accuracy.

I guess that since he would only add a couple of feet of it into each melt one roll lasted a modestly long time.

SO...I thought I would just stick this in here since it really does not warrant or need its own thread.

So here it is (below) in case anybody wants to experiment with it.

Thanks for the heads up! Picked some up from Lowes Yesterday. Made another 350 230 TC's took me 2 hours. Man I will say this these two cavity molds STINK!!!!!!
went to Midway this morning backorder a 6 banger, with handles, and sizer, LEE 124 Grain 9mm Mold.

PS I don't know why I haven't been casting for years!!! This is so much fun! And CHEAP! SO far 850 230 Grain bullets have costed me about $5.00 yes thats $5.00. I travel alot for work, so I used my Marriots rewards to get me $300 in cabelas Gift cards in which I got my initial equipment pot, and etc...... PS I love MARRIOT REWARDS.....
