Lyman Casting Dipper
We aren't casting up hundreds of these. 45 bullets because these are what i use. In the springfield and in the thompson. Though you know i hear people having trouble feeding lead bullets and no assumptions but i haven't had any. Difficulty that's all I've shot in it but you know this profile you know. Depends i think a lot on the bullet that you're using this profile is very. Similar to the regular jacketed bullet but this is that li mold 450 to. 230 grain but it is the tumble lube so. It's got those small grooves so i can just tumble they work very well but the. One thing i was gonna mention i have. Been using the lyman lead scooper I've. Been pretty impressed with this see but. It's got the old look there that's got a. Bevel on it and then there's two little. Feet where it'll sit and then it can be. Switched from right to left hand — but. Nice heavy cast and good long handle you. Now you said that lee would and that was pretty pitiful this really works. Well i think i paid like 20 bucks for it. But it saves me a lot of aggravation. Particularly what i like it leaves very little sprue because you can get yo that. Nozzle right in there so you don't waste a lot you don't end. Up filling led all over the top of the mall this works really well very much. Worth in the 20 bucks but that is a. Regular alignment product what i like heavy you keep it right in the pot the cast. Iron is so hot that the lid doesn't tend. To get hard you know otherwise it'll cool down in a little leak inner ones this works much better but I'm. Melting another batch here it'll be the. Third block but they're easy to work. With you know that tumble lube makes them simple.

Lyman Ingot Mold
Hello youtube I've been wanting to get. Into bullet casting and as a mechanic i. Have a ready supply of wheel weights. Available that I've been collecting and. I decided that i needed to start off with smelting started off with just. Stuff I'm finding around the shop just. To get started and kind of learned the process took an old automotive air. Conditioning accumulator and cut the bottom out of it use that to melt some. Lead start it off with just melting the. Wheel weights getting the clips off. Getting the dross off the top letting it. Cool quenching it and then dropping it. Out of the basically cauldron that i. That i made that worked okay until about. The third batch i tried to put some more. Lead in idle oh there's different. Temperature what i did wrong i think a. Lot of the dirt and grime and adhesive. Backing from some of the stick on wheel. Weights basically it made it to where this wouldn't drop out anymore no matter what i did i ended up having to hammer it out so i knew that wasn't. Gonna work trying to heat it and cast it. In the same you know container oh and i. Was basically melting this with the oxy acetylene torch that we have at work just for a small batches for test runs. Wide ended up doing next was heating it. Up and then pouring it into a little. Metal basically a tin box that i found. Lying around the shop that wasn't being used anymore that seemed to work okay except i don't. Now if you can notice or not where the hinges on the box where it kind of molded. Itself around those and then it wouldn't. Come out i also had a problem where i. Tried to pour some and the lead was a little too cold and you can see that I'm. Hoping this you know doesn't cause a problem when i go to actually cast bullets with it but i guess you can see what happens when you cast that too low of a temperature the next thing i did i headed over to do. Some research on the internet because things were going as well as I'd like. Came across a site called cast bullets. But the bullets is spelled b oli ts and. Saw what they were using for smelting. Ingot molds basically and i found a nice. One that they were making out of cat out. Of angle iron and i happen to have a piece of that lying around the shop so it came up with this and this was a. Design that there a lot of people are using on there and so basically i just. Copied it and stole it basically i took. The inch and a half angle iron that i had just a scrap piece about four or. Five feet long lying around the shop and cut it off into four inch sections. The important part of this design is. The angle that you cut on the sides you. Have the natural angle from the angle iron but the angle that you cut on the. Sides allows when the lead shrinks that. They'll come right out and release i had. This handle lying around i had a couple of these actually that i didn't know what kind of project i was going to use them for and turned out that worked out pretty good for that and I'll show you why in a minute. Basically i saw people had discussions. About whether they weld them on the inside or the outside i decided to weld. It on the back just because this. Material that i had was a lot thicker than what everybody else is using the. Welds ended up standing up a lot more i. Didn't want to have to go to the trouble to basically dress all these down to the. Ingots from sticking. Because of all the little depressions. That are in all the welds so this was a. Pretty tough stuff it was hard to cut with the chop saw still got some pretty nice square cuts out of it and i basically had the miller. Mattock turned him all the way to six and i still couldn't get a lot of penetration out of it but it worked out really good i heated. Up a nice batch of wheel weights and. Here're the ingots that i got out of. It and they fit real well back in there. So i can show you that just by happy. Accident this handle design worked out. Really well because basically after i poured it they frosted over a. Little bit i couldn't jiggle them anymore i picked it up like this and turned him. Over and an optimal loose and i was ready to go glad to make two more bars. So that was my little project for the. Afternoon since i didn't have much work while i was waiting for parts to show up and just thought you guys might like to. See that if you have any questions about how to make these head over to cast. Bullets forums or you can message me. With some questions on youtube thank you.
Lyman 4500 Lube Sizer with Heater
Hello everyone today we're going to do a video on the lyman 4500 loop sizer can. Kind of like a how-to slash overview the. Whole thing type of thing so yeah let's. Get started now these are some of the. Things that you'll need to buy that doesn't come with your super sizer right. Here we got a sizing guide this one is a three to three sizing die you can seal. Holes on the longest side where the lube comes in now you can buy these you can. Go in the lyman website you can get them in all sorts of different diameters for. Whatever you need to size or one — sighs. — and yeah that's the die that you need. This here is the top punch this one. Happens to be a number eight top punch and basically what that does is it will. Go on the top of the lube resizer and that's what pushing that's what. Pushing down on your bolt to make it go into the die if you don't have the. Proper top punch it could mar or ruin. Tip your bowl so you want to get the proper top punch now about some of the. Things that comes with your lyman 4500 package you got the little wrench you'll. Use that to take out the locking lug. That holds in your sizing die you got. Those little allen wrench here you'll use that to take out and tighten in your. Top punch make sure that stays in and. You also got your gas checks heater I'll. Show you how to use that in a moment and you use that seed your gas checks and. You also got the heater that comes with. The lyman 4500 and this is what you use. To heat up your loop so it flows the. Route the looper size are easier so now. I'll show you how to insert your sizing guide put that into the loop sizer push. Down in take your locking that. And the tool was going until we find a. Thread there backwards it is you do not. Want to strip this and just go to your. Nice and snug you can take your top. Punch of this start it in the top and i. Got the little screw here and we'll just. Screw that in dull snug and there you go. So now we're going to add our new. Processor sticks bot there we go now. These are here is your bullet lube let's hold it down the middle so it will fit in the piston there so I'm going to. Show you how to put these in there now, so we'll take our wrench we'll switch it to the in bring this all. The way back up I'll show you how this operates in just a moment. Well take our top cover off goodbye. There is the part that pushes down on. The bullet loop which forces it to your die let's take that out got two rings on. It the excess bullet lube on there from. Before so we'll take our new precise. Errs stick i make these myself it's my. Homemade bolt loop i might do a video on how to make these one day so push that. Down in their take that one screw in. Until it catches now put all the way. Back down top cover back on now you go. And tell your boat snug and if you're. Doing it up a hard loop you're going to want to heat your lube first so leave this on for about 10 20 minutes whatever. It takes and it will soften up your loop. Because you don't want to force hard loop through the loop sizer now I'll. Show you guys how the adjustment down here works so if you have taken your. Bullet set in your die and push down. It's going way too far down so now what. We're having this loop coming up or on. The top of the bullet which we do not. Want so we're going to take this let me. Adjust it until you get it right excuse. My dog in the background. And now i think it's getting pretty. Close so I'll check it stuck out some. Lube coming up i haven't don't have too much pressure. There on piston a little bit further yet. Right there i think should be good so. We'll take our bullets push down a. Little pressure on it and now we have a. Perfectly newt bullet so now that we got. It all set up right I'll show you how we. Use it so let's take the bullet on there. Down apply little bit of pressure wasn't. Quite enough pressure bring it up i got. A little bullet take another one now. When you apply pressure on the top here usually it will be good for about 2 or 3 bullets so I'll bring it back up. Another good looped bullet that's. Without applying pressure another one. Now you see we are missing some loop and. Some spots so you'll stick that. Back in and apply little bit of pressure. Which fills up the loop gaps so now. We'll do an up close view stick the. Bullet on there apply some pressure. Bring back up lube bullet. Do it again letters lubed bullet apply. Some pressure another lubed bullet i used to do a lot. Of pan lubing I'm a competitive shooter. So i shoot a lot of bullets and it is. Extremely slow compared to this and I'm. Doing right now it's pretty slow you get going to two hands you can get a lot. Done really fast by level of pressure. Again and yeah lose your bullet so now. I'll show you all how to use the gas checks heater and slide that in the bottom there I'll take my 8 millimeter. Bullet and gas check apply the gas check. On the bottom stick it in the sizer push. Down till it stops and i get it gas. Check to pull up now to move it you'll. Take it out and run it through like you. Normally would now get your lubed and gas check to. Bullet and this here is what we use you. Got this little rod right here that's what you use to push out the bullet so. We'll take this one's already been. Gassed i conceded but I'll use that as. An example push your rod down and this will bring. It back up so you can take your bullet. Out so that was my video on the. Alignment 4500 lube sizer if you want to. Get one for yourself you can go in the description and I'll have a link there to amazon and you can pick one of these. Up for yourself hope you guys enjoyed. Like and subscribe if you liked it and have a nice day.

Lyman Bullet Mold Handles
Ok today we're going to review the lyman. Vote mold 3 1 3 2 4 9 which is a 32. Caliber bullet mold that throws a round. Nose bullet ah 32 now around those. Bullets the box states it should be 85. Grams the reason i bought this bullet. Mold is i wanted to bullet for 32 smiths. & wesson's like you know this lemon. Squeezer here 32 smith & wesson and as. An old cartridge it was important a lot. Of these pocket guns these brake tops. Like the lemon squeezer and then there were a lot of knockoffs and copies a. Harrington Richardson iver johnson it was a popular cartridge for what was. Called pocket guns err concealed carry. Guns back in the 1880s up until they. Still made these guns in this caliber and you'll find a lot of them around the. Problem with the boat balls is or with. The bullet weight is lee makes two thirty-two bullets one's a hundred grain. Which i believe is more for the thirty. Two twenty cartridge, and they made the 93 grain which i had that one and a fork. A b mold and i used that in the 32 smith. & wesson law caliber and it works very. Well the problem i ran into is 93. Grams is a tad bit heavy for the little. 32 smith & wesson so actually lyman has tweeted from bulk. Moulds you could use there's this one here which is 85 grain there's the 311 252 which is even. Slightly smaller they expose idli throws. A 77 grain it's not even ten grains less. Plus you can use this as a light bullet. In the 32 long so that's why i got this. One other than the real light one and. This is kind of one of the smaller bullets i cast another reason why you. Want to reload for the thirty thirty-two smith & wesson is you can get ammunition. There're several manufacturers it was. Kind of hard to find i found this stuff here Remington made it i think Remington makes it i don't know. If winchester makes it and i think magtek will make this short but i. Couldn't find the only thing i could find was a Remington gander mountain wanted like $34 a box for it and i got. This at bud's gun shop and in the end i. Think i bought four or five boxes it comes out to with the shipping and handling and everything the postage about $27 a box so i said yep i have to reload so my. Choice of bullets like i said i got a. Couple of the lead 32 molds which I've. Used in different 32 calibers the french. Revolver and 32 long but they're tad bit. Heavy so i wanted a lighter bullet so i went with the lyman mold and think about. Lyman molds I've always liked them. Actually preferred them the steel molds. To the aluminum when i was younger i had a huge collection of lineman molds on my pistol. Bullets i cast with lyman molds and over. The years i accumulated a lot i sold them all off i wasn't catching bullets for a while and most of the stuff i was. Shooting was surplus guns and ammo so he. Didn't really reload much for the aks. Anything else but now into the antiques the older guns and some of the large. Rifles like 4570 the grass and that you. Have to cast bones so i kind of got back anywhere the linemen moles they. Cost a little more i mean the leading molds you can get a two tab neely mold for about 20 bucks you're looking anymore from sixty to eighty dollars for the lions and their steel well i mean. Only it has a product line you can go. Get a catalogue whatever they have a set number of molds set designs which made. Up to their reloading manuals you can. Find the bullets in the reloading manuals with all the information you. No info data you need steel mold and. It's there you only get them in the steel that are blue they're probably off. The shelf other than a custom mold. They're probably the best quality mold you can get our cbs is good sake i was. Good but i always like the lyman's out. Cbs is are a little bit more expensive in psychos are a little more expensive. Then alignment also and i really like. Then i always have steel molds once you. Get the grease off of them get them up. To temperature and run the casts are. Real nice bullet really no break-in. Period i hate you know once it got up. The temperature first time out hit some. You know you get yours anomalies once you got out the temperature cats good bullets all day long and i cast these. With 120 lead alloy and i made them kind. Of soft you don't want to make them hard. For the old guns with the old. Barrels either you know so i use the. Softer led i didn't use like hardball if. I was looking for a 38 special or. Something or 32 long i might use a. Different a like a little bit harder but. I just use a 1 to 20 fairly soft fathers. It's just pure light and a bullets did come out to about ninety-three and a half 94 grains very nice and like i said. Pulling in a fired case did an idea it. Looks good it's probably the heavy end. There's only two bullets the 84 and the. 77 green for the 32 smith & wesson as. For the steel molds like when i was revealing the other mold i had some brass ones the line of molds only come and steal some places you go and you. Give your choice of what material you want to mold me out or either steel brass or aluminum a little bit of molds. Are always going to be less expensive no matter if you get them custom-made and the only thing about aluminum molds i. Use a lot of them i guess a lot of bullets would you kind of hit a spot. With the aluminum walls where they cast. Good once they're warmed up and another. Think if you're out in the garage that. Ideally should cast indoors where the. Temperature and climate control is regulated stopping the garage at a cold. Day out here the aluminum molds act up on me you know they cool off too fast. That's your room temperature is really cold where the steel molds what i like. About them is once you get them up to. Temperature and that's where i did a technique this i like to moles and once. You get them up to temperature you're. Poor one set it on the bench to let it cool a little before the second one set. It on the bench open this one repour by then it's cooled off and on and you can. Actually look the steel mole if you can keep them up there nice temperature without over evening and. Smear on the top of the blocks that's when you get them too hot and you get carried away caston and you can keep two. Molds run all day on beautiful bullets. Not have any leg build-up nothing no trouble that's why i kind of like them. But the downside is they are more. Expensive you know for the price of this. I can get three different types lee. Molds for the same amount of money and that's why a lot of people go with it there you're trying to conserve money that's kind of the name of the game but. As far as the linemen molds i never had. A bad one they're always they always make good. Bullets for me no matter what i like them a lot and this one here is. Like i said just heavy load for 33 smiths. & wesson i kind of had to go in it because you know we didn't have a bullet. Light enough i got the other 232 family. Which i do use in air aluminum well this. One here was just to get it out it was a. Pleasure to cast with you know even. Though it's a bit of an expense to it. The molds all you know all the way. Around i like i said I've had several of them over the years i bought a lot of them in the past i like them the only. Think about this is when you're done for. The day you got a coat it down with some. Wd-40 or spray something on there. Because they will rust still rust overnight if i leave this out here without putting oil on it or something or some kind of protective coating it will rust overnight it's about the only downside of the steel. Molds is you have to make sure that you don't let them rust does that a room so. That's it if you're looking for a mold for again the 32 smith & wesson. You're gonna reload that caliber i don't. Now if there's anything out there but i got these lyman three one three two. Forty nine and it's good mold, and we're. Going to do some reloading when i get into reloading it we'll try them off let's check out a bullet or.
