Basic Casting Manual

Post by Uncle Fester » Sun Jul 26, 2020 7:53 pm

I have decided to try my hand a bullet casting. Is there a good manual with step by step instructions.

Yup, forget the manual. Get a melter, some alloys and mould. Heat the mould up to ~ 400F before casting and make sure sprue plate is hot enough. Then practice. Ask questions on any bullet casting site for fine details. You are NOT baking a cake - most any method will work. If you are looking for cast load data, just use low side jacketed data.

It's free. It's much more in-depth on several subjects.

I'd highly recommend that ALL new casters read it.

I'd 2nd this....
I printed this out and made my own bound book.

A close second is the Lyman book.

If you order one of their casting kits, a printed copy of it is included.
