Hopefully in the next months, I'll be able to begin casting lead ingots and bullets. I would like to do it without the use of a lead pot like a Lee or RCBS. I currently have these supplies to begin: 2 rolls of lead sheets that was used for x-ray shielding in a dentists office A bunch used lead washers used for CL2 regulators on CL2 ton cylinders 1 old cast iron dutch oven with lid 2 old lead ladles A couple of things that are hindering me from casting is: A steel table (which I'll be making soon) A way to melt the lead An inexpensive source of lead. The questions that I have is what do ya'll use to melt lead? Is it by propane or electric? Where can I find an inexpensive source of lead? What do ya'll use as ingots and bullet molds? Any help would be appreciated.
