So with the upcoming elections and the semi panic buying after the Orlando incident, I was thinking about lead casting bullets to be a little more self reliant. I'm an avid Ulua Fisherman so pouring lead is nothing new to me. I have the equiptment, several hundred of pounds of clean raw lead and have been pouring fishing lead for 20 years. I prefer to shoot plated bullets but if SHTF, was considering to be prepared to cast my own.
With that said, what are your thoughts on lead casting? Recommenadtions on molds,dies, lube and techniques. With the casting, gas checks, sizing and lube is it worth it? How is the lead buildup in the barrel rifle and pistol? Easier to just trade some raw lead for ready to load bullets?
