Re: Bullet Casting Pro's and Con's
Making bullets for profit in the US does require a federal license, unfortunately.
400 pounds? Holy cow - I'm happy when my stash is up about 50 pounds! That will take you a while to burn through! Casting is a fun and easy, but time consuming. If you like doing it, that's no problem.
That's a lot of money to get started - are you buying a lot of molds or just a few high dollar ones? Most of mine are Lee and work just fine - the only semi-expensive one I have is the NOE, a very good mold.
Number one casting resource on the web is castboolits.gunloads.com.
